Injuries such as tendonitis, muscle strains, ligament sprains, joint pain, muscle pain, poor posture and cartilage tears are commonly treated in the physical therapy setting. Many of us will experience these types of injuries throughout our lifetimes, especially low back pain.
Physical therapy has been proven to be effective to decrease pain and inflammation associated with these injuries and will result in improved function and quality of life. These injuries are movement related and our physical therapists will not only address the acute symptoms of pain and inflammation but address the movement problem as well.
At Revolution physical therapy we address all factors of every person to enhance healing and recovery.
Many studies have shown that healing is effected by many factors. Delayed wound healing in humans has been previously correlated with smoking, alcohol consumption, poor sleep, lack of physical activity which also increases physiological stress. The healing progress is highly dependent on the person’s nutritional status. Glucose, polyunsaturated fatty acids, protein and the vitamins, A, C, E, and zinc are essential dietary components for tissue healing. A poor diet such as high saturated fat/low protein or vitamin depletion secondary to smoking and alcohol could compromise wound healing. Disturbed sleep patterns due to stress could also result in decreased growth hormone release and further down regulation of the tissue repair processes.
Our physical therapists will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine an appropriate treatment plan to get you back to your pre-injury levels of function as quickly as possible. A program will be designed specifically for each individual to enhance a timely recovery. Massage, electrical stimulation, stretching, strengthening and balance exercises will also be implemented to enhance as well as ensure a full recovery. Our physical therapists will also discuss lifestyle modification and nutrition programs that can be used to enhance recovery.
We believe all injuries should be addressed the same way elite athletes are addressed when they are injured. Everyone should be treated with the best practices that are available. See sports injuries for more details.
