We’ve all been guilty of ignoring a small injury or minor aches and pains because we think “it’ll go away,” or “it will get better on its own.” In some cases, that is true, but in other cases, not addressing an injury when it first starts bothering you can cause it to worsen over time and result in a larger issue that could become more problematic down the line.
At Purpose Physical Therapy, we offer preventative PT so you can receive the treatment and guidance you need at the appropriate time. Below are some benefits of preventative PT and how it can help you.
1. Injury Prevention
By addressing imbalances and potential risk factors, preventative physical therapy can help reduce the likelihood of injuries occurring, especially in athletes and individuals with physically demanding jobs.
The human body’s relationship with pain is complex. By creating a partnership with your Physical Therapist, you can ask all your questions and gain the knowledge that will help you decrease pain and injury and improve performance.
3. Pain Management
Preventative PT can help manage chronic pain by improving strength, flexibility, and mobility, and by promoting healthy movement patterns and your mindset around pain.
4. Improved Physical Performance
Preventative PT can help optimize physical function, leading to improved performance in sports, work, and daily activities.
5. Cost Savings
Preventative PT can help reduce healthcare costs by preventing the need for extensive and expensive interventions later on.
6. Improved Quality of Life
By promoting overall physical wellness and reducing the risk of injury or pain, preventative physical therapy can improve an individual’s overall quality of life.
7. Personalized Treatment
A treatment plan is always going to be tailored to the individual’s unique needs and goals.
Don’t wait any longer to prioritize your health. Our experienced Physical Therapists are here to help you get started on your journey to better health and pain-free living.
