Your Physical Therapist in Portsmouth NH
Welcome to your physical therapist in Portsmouth NH. When you think about physical therapy, you may think of rehab after an injury or surgery. While that is certainly part of what your Portsmouth physical therapist does, it's just the beginning. Things like personal injury treatment, sports injury treatment, pain relief, and improvement in range of motion are all things that a physical therapist does. Strengthening weakened or atrophied muscles, relieving muscle tension, helping bring back proper motion to arthritic joints, and easing inflammation are other benefits you can get from physical therapy.
What to Expect at Your Physical Therapist in Portsmouth
Have you ever been to a physical therapist? Whether you have or have not, what do you think of when you consider a typical physical therapy visit? You probably think of some kind of targeted exercise session focused on the area that needs healing, correct? In reality, there is no such thing as a typical physical therapy session. Each person who comes to us is an individual with unique needs. Each physical therapy session is, therefore, custom designed on a per patient basis. This is not a generic field of medicine at all. It is individualized medicine at its best.
Chiropractors often work alongside physical therapists, and sometimes they even share offices together. This is because chiropractic medicine and physical therapy are such natural partners. A chiropractor diagnoses and treats issues with the musculoskeletal parts of humans, with an emphasis on the spine. This is because the nerves are connected to the spine and brain simultaneously, and when spinal issues are corrected, it can release tension in the whole body, flood the body with feel-good chemicals that naturally relieve pain and boost mood, and even boost immunity. Natural flexibility can be restored much more easily in a relaxed, pain-free person, which is why chiropractic medicine and physical therapy go so well together. One sets things up nicely for the other to do the best job possible with favorable working conditions already in place.
Working together, a physical therapist and a chiropractor can provide a powerful healing program for the following conditions:
- Low back pain
- Herniated disks
- Spinal stenosis
- Work or sports injuries
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Soft tissue trauma of all kinds
- Inflammation in the soft tissues
- Fractures and dislocations
- Most neurological disorders, such as strokes, MS, Parkinson's, and more
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Pulled muscles
- Muscle spasms
- and so much more.
