Physical Therapy Q & A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is one of several manual medical specialties that focuses on the health and function of your musculoskeletal system, which includes your muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. The goal of physical therapy is to help improve strength, balance, coordination, and range of movement so you can regain your independence.

The physical therapy and rehab team at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC help you achieve your functional goals using the most advanced, evidence-based practices available.

Am I a good candidate for physical therapy?

The Physical Therapist at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC works closely with your treating Physician. Many painful and neurological conditions benefit from physical therapy, including:

  • Back pain
  • Balance disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Neuromuscular Diseases
  • Dystonic/Spastic Syndromes
  • Auto accidents and injuries resulting in a workers’ compensation claim
  • Post-Concussion Syndrome
  • Cervicogenic Headaches
  • Sports Injury
  • Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Post Stroke Recovery

You may also benefit from physical therapy after a stroke to help regain function and mobility.

What can I expect from physical therapy?

Your physical therapist at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC provides customized treatment plans based on your diagnosis, medical history, and functional ability. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Manual therapy
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Joint and soft tissue mobility
  • Traction (Lumbar and Cervical)
  • Ultrasound therapy, such as phono or iontophoresis
  • Electrical Stimulation including Iontophoresis
  • Orthotics or prosthetics training
  • Anodyne therapy, an FDA-approved treatment for diabetic neuropathy and drug free pain relief
  • TENS

For pain relief, your physical therapist may recommend transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) unit. The unit sends low-voltage electrical impulses through your skin that helps eliminate pain sensations in the affected area. Your physical therapist may use the TENS unit before you start therapy so the pain doesn’t limit your function during treatment.

While your physical therapist provides many treatments at the office, your therapist may also recommend an exercise program for you to do at home to maintain the results achieved during therapy. Your physical therapist works closely with your treating physician at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC to help with continuity of care and ensure you get the best outcome possible.

Physical therapy is an important part of treatment for many conditions. To learn more about how you may benefit from physical therapy, call Michigan Neurology Associates & PC or schedule an appointment online today.
