Physical therapists are experts in movement and function. After an injury or illness, a physical therapist helps you return to your active lifestyle. They study muscles, nerves, bones and joints, helping them evaluate your needs and teach you the right exercises to restore function. They work with you to reduce pain, build strength, correct posture and increase flexibility, strength and functional ability.
Who needs physical therapy?
Physical therapists treat people of all ages. Those experiencing pain and functional limitations as a result of back and neck injuries, sprains/strains, fractures, arthritis, burns, stroke, amputation, work injuries and sports injuries may all benefit from physical therapy. Healthy individuals who need help with an exercise program guidance in exercising or people with chronic medical conditions who would like to exercise may benefit from a consultation with a physical therapist.
Each patient at Riverside Rehab receives an individually designed program to address issues relating to pain, strength, range of motion, flexibility, posture, endurance, balance and coordination.
