Physical Therapy Check-Up

Many people go to their doctor once a year for a physical. However, this physical by your primary care physician is not specifically catered to your musculoskeletal system. That’s why you need an annual physical therapy check-up.Picture2a

At your appointment, we’ll check your joint mobility, spine mobility, flexibility and strength, and perform an overall movement assessment. If necessary, we’ll provide a home exercise program, activity modifications, or pain management as needed. An annual PT check-up truly is preventative maintenance for your musculoskeletal system.  Your check-up is completely individualized and customized to you and your daily activities.

According to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) every individual should pay an annual visit to a physical therapist along with making an annual visit to a physician for a complete physical check- up.

Recent discoveries have pointed to the fact that physical therapy provides a holistic approach to overall health and wellness.  The APTA recently cited an increase in physical inactivity and its consequences of developing obesity, chronic diseases and other illnesses.  Picture3

The American Heart Association also recommends physical therapy for patients at risk of developing heart disease and as a preventative measure against heart disease.  

The New England Journal of Medicine also released benefits physical therapy has on reversing certain common back conditions with non- surgical treatments.
