The benefits of physical therapy

Physical therapy is a broad term that encompasses a wide range of treatment methods for injuries, conditions, and illnesses. At the Ivy Rehab Network, we focus not only on treating your condition but also on helping you prevent future injuries from taking place. Physical therapy programs often include a therapist using their hands to perform manual therapy in conjunction with specific exercises for your condition. These exercises can include stretching, core strength and stability, lifting light weights, and aerobics. The goal of each exercise will vary but are often designed to increase flexibility, reduce stress on joints, strengthen muscles, and/or mobilize joints.

At Ivy Rehab, we know that healthy, strong patients recover faster from life’s challenges. That’s why we’ve designed treatments and programs to help empower you to make healthier choices, every day. Our experts can evaluate your fitness and create a supervised exercise and nutrition program just for you. We’ll show you how to boost your unique metabolism, burn calories, add muscle, and eat better — while having fun doing it.

Some of the many benefits of physical therapy may include:

  • Reducing pain in muscles and joints
  • Improving mobility and flexibility
  • Recovering properly from an injury
  • Getting back to playing sports
  • Avoiding surgery
  • Preventing falls
  • Optimal post-surgical healing and recovery
