Rehabilitation is crucial to restoring pain-free movement, regaining independence, and reclaiming your quality of life. Regardless of age, when mobility is compromised, it affects every aspect of living – from your ability to work, to simple daily tasks such as cooking, to your overall mood.
Physical therapists are movement experts who help you to recover from injuries and other disorders through prescribed exercise, hands-on care, and patient education. At Elevate Medical, physical therapists work collaboratively with several other healthcare providers, including medical doctors, chiropractors, and nurse practitioners, to ensure patients receive the best treatment plan for their individual needs, challenges, and goals.
When you work with physical therapists at Elevate Medical, you will be empowered to be an active participant in your care. You will be taught how to take control of your pain, improve your mobility, and reduce your risk of future re-injury. In addition, physical therapy may help you to avoid expensive, invasive, and possibly unsuccessful surgery, and offer a safer alternative to opioids in the management of long-term pain.
For some conditions, physical therapy is as effective as surgery:
Rotator Cuff Tears
Degenerative Disc Disease
