If you experience pain, lack of mobility or weakness anywhere in your body, you may benefit from physical therapy. Physical therapy is a way to help treat the muscles and nerves in your body that can become painful due to injury or a physical condition.
In some cases, patients may be referred to a physical therapist by a general practitioner. After diagnosing an injury or the source of pain, many doctors recommend that their patients visit a physical therapist to help relieve pain and restore range of motion to the area.
However, if you are in pain, you don’t have to visit a doctor first. At Arrow Physical Therapy, your physical therapist may be able to perform an examination of the area that hurts and make a recommendation for treatment.
