Four Ways Physical Therapy Helps Speed Up Recovery
Whether it be from a car accident or from a sports injury, from a slip and fall accident, or from a movement that just “threw things out of whack,” you’ll need to make sure you have a successful recovery if you’ve been injured. Because you have a life that can’t be held up by your injury, you may be wondering, “how can I speed up my recovery?” The answer: Gina V Physical Therapy in Papillion.
It isn’t just about getting better. It’s about getting better FAST, and here are four ways our team at Gina V can help make that happen.
1. You’ll Get Stronger with Physical Therapy
When you get injured, you don’t move as much and you ultimately become weaker because you’re not using your muscles in the injured area regularly. Gina V Physical Therapy will help you to increase your muscle strength little by little and in a short amount of time, you’ll see big gains in your progression.
2. You’ll Reduce the Risk of Further Injury with Physical Therapy
It may seem counter-productive, but in many cases, movement is precisely what you need when you’re injured. Strange, right? Under the care and supervision of a licensed physical therapist at Gina V Physical Therapy in Papillion, we will guide and monitor your movements to ensure your injury isn’t further aggravated by the increased range of motion you will achieve in physical therapy.
3. You’ll Use Assistive Devices Less with Physical Therapy
You’ll need your assistive devices less as you complete each session at Gina V Physical Therapy. It may be a walker, a splint, a brace, crutch, cane, etc.; whatever it is that you are using to assist you in day to day activities, you’ll need it less and less as you progress in your physical therapy program.
4. You’ll Get Back To Doing The Things You Love to Do
When you are injured, those “little things” that you did each day have most likely been impacted. Whether it’s going for a walk, playing with grandchildren, dancing, getting the mail, or taking a shower, you’ll be able to do those things you did before you were injured much sooner than if you chose not to take part in physical therapy. At Gina V Physical Therapy, our goal is to help you get back to doing the things you love to do.
