We all experience aches and pains from time to time. Small injuries or unexplained pain might require us to take it easy for a few days until our bodies heal themselves. But what happens when you’re involved in a serious injury, need surgery, or suffer from chronic pain. This can happen to any of us at any time and most of us aren’t prepared for it when it does happen.
When you’re dealing with chronic pain, an injury, or recovering after surgery, you need a team you can rely on. At Robbins PT West, we can help you through the pain with the physical therapy services we offer in Bangor. With the care and guidance of our expert physical therapy team, you’ll be feeling better before you know it.
What Does Physical Therapy Do?
If you’ve been dealing with an injury or chronic pain, you might have already looked through a few different options for treatment or maybe physical therapy was the first thing to come to mind. There are a few routes you can take when looking for treatment for injury and pain, but none that are as reliable as physical therapy. Whether your pain is severe or minor, physical therapy can be effective at treating it and repairing any damage.
Common ways of dealing with pain often involve medications or surgery, both of which people try to avoid for multiple reasons when possible. Negative side effects of some treatments can make you feel anxious about getting help, but this isn’t an issue with physical therapy. With the help of your physical therapist, you can learn exercises that will help you regain function where you feel pain and begin to treat the pain. In addition to exercises, your physical therapist might recommend stretches that can ease pain and improve your injury. Icing and heating methods along with massages are also common in physical therapy. A lot of what you might do in your sessions are things you’ll eventually be able to do on your own at home.
