It’s completely natural for the body to break down over time. As we age, our bodies incur wear-and-tear that can cause a variety of arthritic or repetitive stress related conditions. The pain resulting from these conditions can make it difficult to do the things you once loved. But you don’t need to let your age slow you down – physical therapy can help! In this physical therapy education article, we are going to talk about how physical therapy can help you prevent your age from slowing you down.
How Physical Therapy can Help
If you are experiencing pain as you age and it’s preventing you from engaging in the activities you love, physical therapy can help! A physical therapist can fully evaluate your current condition and make note of any musculoskeletal issues that may be causing pain. Using this information, your rehabilitation specialist can work with you to develop a physical therapy program to address these issues. Various exercises, stretches, and other modalities can help improve your range-of-motion and mobility, while decreasing your pain simultaneously. Ultimately, physical therapy can help you return to an active lifestyle so you can enjoy life to the fullest no matter how old you are!
