Most people associate physical therapy with post-surgical care. While this is one application of it, there are actually a lot of reasons to turn to physical therapy. In fact, receiving physical therapy before an issue becomes too serious can help you avoid surgery altogether. At Barrett Hospital & HealthCare, our physical therapists can help you with everyday pain, persistent soreness, loss of mobility or the ability to function at a previous level.
Manual therapy has been found to decrease edema, pain, spasms, and swelling, enhance health, wellness, and performance. We focus on the following areas:
