Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is an excellent treatment modality for long-term chronic pain. It’s effective for sports injuries, orthopedic conditions, such as osteoporosis and low back pain, and joint and soft tissue injuries. A physical therapist will evaluate components of your movement and function and create an individual treatment plan to increase range of motion, body mechanics and strength while reducing pain.

The Benefits of Physical Therapy in Orland Park

man getting physical therapy treatmentPhysical therapy treatment plans vary depending on your condition. It may include strengthening exercises, low-impact aerobic training, pain relief exercise and stretching exercise. You may work on core muscles, as well as other parts of the body. Many physical therapists implement the McKenzie and Dynamic Lumbar Stabilization exercises. The McKenzie exercises are spinal extension exercises that reduce pain from compromised disc space like a herniated disc. All of its upper and lower back exercises use core muscle contraction. These exercises are also effective for radiculopathy and degenerative disc disease. Dynamic Lumbar Stabilization exercises teach the spine how to stay in proper position. It focuses on an awareness of where the joint are positioned. The benefits of Dynamic Lumbar Stabilization include reduction in back pain and good spinal positioning. Plus, it can be combination with McKenzie exercises. Physical therapists also provide trigger point exercise for cervical pain.

Physical therapy may also include passive treatment, such as heat/ice packs, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS) units and ultrasound. Ice helps reduce inflammation, while heat helps relax muscles. TENS units use electrical stimulation to mask low back pain by hiding painful signals sent to the brain. These units can also be used at home. With ultrasound, sound waves deliver deep heat and penetrate into the soft tissues to reduce pain and enhance tissue healing.
