There are lots of benefits of physical therapy, or PT. First, it can help improve mobility and movement without having to have surgery. Second, PT can help you recover quicker from an injury, trauma, stroke or paralysis. Third, it can improve your balance and help prevent falls that could result in further injury. Fourth, it’s the proper way to manage pain without the need for addictive opioids. PT can help with a broad spectrum of issues like cardiopulmonary issues, carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), concussions and tennis elbow.
