Why Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy, often called PT, uses several approaches for treating injuries. These treatment methods include prescribing specific exercises to strengthen weak muscles, using electrotherapy and shockwaves to stimulate muscles and tendons to reduce pain, and teaching patients how to move safer and more effectively through the science of kinesiology.


There are many reasons why a person would use physical therapy to help with pain and get back to their mobility. But why physical therapy?


The answer? Because physical therapy works.


Physical therapy helps people correct movement, manage pain, recover from injuries, and more. Our bodies crave movement, and we are always told how important it is to be active in our daily lives. It’s the same when you are injured - you must move, stretch, retrain your body, and retrain your body to get back to where you used to be.


Physical therapy is necessary when your body is ultimately hitting the breaks on improvement. Whether you pulled a muscle while hitting that golf ball, or maybe you were in a bad accident, physical therapy is there to help guide your body to recovery.


As physical therapists, it’s our job to identify and treat movement problems. It is our goal to help restore you to your best self and prevent any further damage from occurring in your body. It’s a big responsibility (trust us, we know!) and we promise to help each and every one of our patients fix their issues and get back to being themselves.


It is always recommended to receive care that meets your needs. Everyone is different, and not every person needs the same plan of care. Physical therapy offers individualized treatment plans for each person undergoing treatment. Since every patient is different, our team of dedicated healthcare professionals will always take the time to design a unique treatment protocol, drawing from each of our modalities specifically for the individual. You are guaranteed personal attention from our caring medical staff when you visit La Ruffa Chiropractic & Sports Rehab in Jupiter.


Physical therapy can assist with most physical needs including but not limited to sports injuries, car accidents, stroke, and age-related medical problems. Plus, it’s sometimes the best choice if trying to avoid surgery.


Ultimately, physical therapy is the difference between improvement and digression. If you are looking for progress and vying to get back to your range of motion, then physical therapy is the way to go.
