Definition of Physical Therapy
Physical therapy helps patients reduce pain. Physical therapy is used to restore a patient's mobility or at least improve it. Therapy oftentimes reduces or eliminates the need for prescription medications. This particular treatment may even allow people to avoid having to undergo an invasive surgery.
During a physical therapy session, our Chiropractor, Dr. Alan Belsky, will evaluate your initial condition to determine the root of the problem. At our chiropractic clinic, our chiropractor provides the 10036 area with exercises that help the back, neck and other pain throughout the musculoskeletal system. Our chiropractor will guide you through specialized exercises geared toward the specific area that's injured. The exercise might consist of the doctor applying pressure to help your body part further extend. The exercises are tailored to your particular condition that way the physical therapy is comfortable, yet effective. The physical therapist will recommend different ways you can increase your therapy at home.
What to Expect from a Visit
Generally, the visit starts with the patient entering the center and getting a thorough examination. X-rays or other testing may be required to get a better idea of what's going on with you. The doctor will ask you to walk and stand for evaluation. The therapist then determines a course of action and goals you should meet.
At the first treatment, the therapist will guide you through exercises. You may receive helpful information on how to enhance your treatment at home. Keep in mind, your goals might change as the treatment progresses, so don't be surprised if your goals and course of action change during your therapy.
