)-- Countless individuals in the Tyler, Texas area are affected by chronic pain, an injury or ongoing health condition that limits their mobility and function. Physical therapy and rehabilitation is a valuable pain management tool following an automobile accident, work-related injury, sports injury or chronic health condition diagnosis. Pain Recovery Center of Tyler now offers effective physical therapy services designed to help restore function, improve mobility and alleviate pain.
Physical therapy is a form of pain management commonly used to relieve pain and improve or restore physical function following an injury. Physical therapy, also referred to as rehabilitation, is also used in the treatment of chronic health conditions such as osteoarthritis, cancer-related issues and ongoing neck and back pain. The physical therapy services at Pain Recovery Center of Tyler are performed by a licensed physical therapist. A physical therapist is specially trained to relieve pain while promoting a greater range of motion and mobility in patients affected by an injury or health condition, as well as after surgery.
In the majority of patients, the first rehabilitation step is to reduce pain and swelling in the affected area. This is achieved with over-the-counter medications, pain management injections, manual therapy, heat, cold or ultrasound stimulation performed by a pain management specialist. The second step is exercise. Exercise and physical activity are essential to a healthy body, so physical therapy services almost always include some form of exercise. Common examples include weight lifting, walking and stretching.
Each patient plays a critical role in their rehabilitation efforts. It is important to attend all appointments, as well as engage in home exercises as prescribed. Physical therapy services are an active process that requires a team approach from the physical therapist, pain management specialist and patient.
