Physical Therapy Q & A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a type of rehabilitation. It combines stretches, strengthening exercises, and hands-on manipulation to help you recover following an accident, surgery, injury, or illness. Sometimes, physical therapy acts as a standalone treatment. Other times, it’s combined with treatments like acupuncture, chiropractic care, or therapeutic massage.

What conditions can benefit from physical therapy?

The team at Maniya Health recommends physical therapy with PTMax to treat various conditions, including:

  • Cardiopulmonary conditions
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Stroke
  • Orthopedic conditions
  • Back and neck pain
  • Knee pain
  • Car accidents
  • Work injuries
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction

You might also benefit from physical therapy if you recently underwent surgery.  

What are the benefits of physical therapy?

Participating in physical therapy offers various benefits, including:

  • Pain management
  • Reduced need for opioids or other pain medications
  • Improved mobility
  • Reduced need for orthopedic surgery
  • Improved balance
  • Fall prevention
  • Management of age-related health problems

If you play sports or lead a physically active lifestyle, physical therapy can maximize your performance on the court or playing field and educate you on the importance of warming up and cooling down.

What does physical therapy involve?

No two physical therapy treatment regimens are exactly alike. Your physical therapist customizes a program based on several factors, including your age, symptoms, and medical history. 

Often, physical therapy combines several treatment modalities. For example, if you have a sprain or a pulled muscle, your provider might recommend manual therapy, joint mobilization, and strength training. If you’re 65 or older and want to enhance your mobility, your provider might recommend exercises to improve your balance and strength.  

All physical therapy appointments occur onsite at Maniya Health through PTMax, which has a team of experts.

How long do I need to participate in physical therapy?

The length of time you need to participate in physical therapy depends on the severity of your symptoms and the underlying issue. Most people benefit from two or three appointments a week over a period of six to eight weeks and sometimes longer.
