One of the key elements of rehabilitation and pain management is physical therapy. Utilizing specific exercises, stretches and strengthening techniques can help reduce pain and improve recovery from injuries. At Medici Spine & Pain, we offer physical therapy to our patients that helps them improve their healing process and control pain. This service is available through our clinics located in the greater Atlanta area.
Physical therapists use their knowledge of the kinesiological components that help the body function to create treatment plans. These plans involve improving flexibility, balance, agility and strength. Exercises are used to increase endurance. This is whether it is for a recovering athlete or a stroke victim, improving the level of tolerance is needed for recovery. Specific movements can retrain the healing muscles, bone and other soft tissues on how to work together again. This is an important element of recovery after any injury, surgery or illness that has had a debilitating effect on the body.
