How Physical Therapy Helps the Healing Process
When you have an injury that continues to be painful weeks after the initial injury takes place, there’s a reason for it. Our physical therapists can talk to you, assess your medical history, and reach a conclusion as to why you are having trouble healing.
One of the most common reasons patients have trouble bouncing back after an injury or surgery is re-injury. It may be because they’re putting pressure on the injury in a way that causes microscopic tears or interferes with the healing process. A lack of muscle strength and coordination can also increase your risk of re-injury.
