Physical Therapy Q & A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy involves using a range of both passive and active treatments that are designed to help heal and strengthen muscles, joints, or soft tissues that are damaged or weakened. Physical therapy is proven to accelerate recovery and restore function for patients.

While a degree of rest and stress avoidance is appropriate at certain stages of some musculoskeletal conditions, prolonged rest leads to weakening not just of the affected tissue, but surrounding structures as well.

How does physical therapy work?

Physical therapies help you recover after an injury by keeping soft tissues flexible and strong and rebuilding muscle and tendon fibers.

Without physical therapy, muscles, tendons, and ligaments can shorten, and the supporting structures become weaker, which means they’re less able to provide the essential support that healing tissue needs.

Physical therapy helps by exercising the tissues in a safe, effective way that doesn’t cause any further damage to the injured area.

What types of physical therapy are there?

There are many forms of physical therapy available. Some are active, so your therapist at Revive Medical and Rehab delivers direct stimulation and manipulation to the soft tissues, and shows you how to carry out exercises at home to help the healing process.

Other physical therapy methods are passive, where your therapist uses advanced technology to administer therapies. Some of the techniques used at Revive Medical and Rehab include:

Therapeutic exercise

Your therapist helps you stretch your muscles and shows you the best way to exercise at home, using resistance, endurance, posture, balance, and coordination.

If you’re having problems with a particular body system, for example, circulation or breathing, your therapist can prescribe exercises to help.

Manual therapy

Manual therapy is both relaxing and restorative, providing benefits that include:

  • Improved circulation
  • Faster healing
  • Reduced inflammation
