What to Expect
When you come to physical therapy, you can access top-of-the-line rehabilitation equipment. Your physical therapist will be beside you, ensuring you get the most out of your session.
Physical therapy incorporates a variety of treatment modalities:
Cold/Heat therapy manages pain, reduces inflammation, and promotes healing in specific body areas. Cold therapy, also known as cryotherapy, involves applying ice or a cold compress to the affected area, which can help reduce swelling and inflammation. Heat therapy, however, uses heat to the affected area, which can help increase blood flow and promote healing. Cold/Heat therapy can effectively treat various injuries and conditions, including sprains, strains, and arthritis.
Hands-on (manual) therapy
Hands-on (manual) therapy is a form of physical therapy involving specific techniques to improve joint mobility, reduce pain, and promote healing. This type of therapy can include joint mobilization, soft tissue massage, and other manual techniques designed to address specific problems in the body. Hands-on therapy can be effective for various conditions, including neck and back pain, arthritis, and sports injuries.
Exercise therapy is a type of physical therapy that involves prescribing specific exercises to help improve strength, flexibility, and overall physical function. Exercise therapy can be used to address a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, muscle weakness, and mobility problems. The exercises prescribed in exercise therapy are customized to each patient’s needs and abilities and are designed to help them achieve their goals and improve their overall quality of life.
Kinesiology taping is a physical therapy technique that involves applying a particular type of tape to the skin to support and stabilize muscles and joints, reduce pain, and enhance movement. This type of therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including sprains, strains, and tendonitis. Kinesiology taping is non-invasive and can be worn for several days, making it a convenient and effective treatment option for many patients.
Massage and myofascial
Massage and myofascial release are techniques used in physical therapy to target tension in muscles and connective tissue. Massage involves applying pressure to specific body areas to promote relaxation and reduce muscle tension. Myofascial release involves applying pressure to the fascia, or connective tissue, which can help reduce pain and improve overall mobility. Both massage and myofascial release can be effective treatments for fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and tension headaches.
Sport-specific training and conditioning is a type of physical therapy tailored to athletes’ needs. This type of therapy involves creating a customized program to improve an athlete’s performance and prevent injuries. Sport-specific training and conditioning can include exercises to improve strength, flexibility, and agility and techniques to help athletes recover from injuries.
Ultrasound therapy is a physical technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to promote healing and reduce inflammation in specific body areas. This type of therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including tendonitis, sprains, and strains. Ultrasound therapy is non-invasive and is generally well-tolerated by patients.
Electrical stimulation is a type of physical therapy that involves using low-level electrical currents to stimulate muscles and nerves. This therapy can improve strength, reduce pain, and promote healing. Electrical stimulation can effectively treat conditions such as chronic pain, muscle weakness, and peripheral neuropathy.
Our physical therapists recognize that the time and money spent coming to the office is valuable, so our goal is to teach you how to do the exercises at home to maintain mobility and function for years to come. In the beginning, your therapy sessions will be more frequent and intense. As you progress, we will see you less often. If progress continues, you will be back to work, sports, and your daily routine.
The physical therapists at Lone Star Orthopaedic and Spine Specialists have advanced skills and training to help assist with your orthopaedic rehabilitation needs. We have partnered with Texas Health Huguley at our Burleson office, which offers patients a convenient on-site location when recovering from an injury or surgical procedure.
