In Broward County, Florida, Anesco Interventional Pain Institute offers solutions for every type of pain imaginable. From headache pain to ankle pain, and everything in between, we handle it all.
Most importantly, we offer many solutions that do not require surgery. Physical therapy provides the most consistent results for all our patients, and we recommend it for anyone who wants to be stronger and healthier.
Here are three things we want you to know about physical therapy
- Participation in a physical therapy program is critical to making a complete recovery.
Your body needs to be strengthened and conditioned in order to prevent repeat injuries and recurring pain episodes. However, many people who have pain struggle to do well in physical therapy. They lack endurance, and pain prevents full participation.
- To experience the full benefits of physical therapy, your pain needs to be at a level you can tolerate.
This level is different for each patient, which is why a one-on-one approach to pain care is so important. As interventional pain medicine specialists, we will get your pain under enough control for you to do physical therapy.Just imagine how much easier those arm or leg exercises will be if you had less pain! Over time, you’ll need less pain medication as the effects of physical therapy begin to take hold.
- Physical therapy programs are designed to start at a level where you are comfortable, and then slowly increase in intensity and frequency.
The goal is to strengthen and condition your muscles without risking further injury or causing more pain. Many patients with back, knee, or shoulder pain quickly notice an improvement in pain levels during physical therapy.The exercises are designed specifically to rehabilitate injured muscles, joints, and soft tissues. Physical therapy can also be customized to help with post-surgical and post-stroke rehabilitation.Physical therapy treatment may include:
- Electrotherapy (TENS)
- Manual, hands-on therapy
- Massage therapy
- Neuromuscular re-education
- Soft tissue and joint mobilization
- Sport-specific training and conditioning
- Therapeutic ultrasound
- And much more
