One of the first treatments doctors recommend to injured patients is physical therapy. Our primary focus at Jamaica Chiropractic & Physical Therapy is to help our patients feel good while allowing their bodies to achieve health and balance. Regardless of what events led to your injury, our team uses the latest physical therapy techniques which can help strengthen your muscles and correct the irregularities in your body which may be causing you pain.
What Is Physical Therapy?
If you have an injury that makes it hard for you to perform daily tasks, physical therapy may be effective. Physical therapy uses activity-based treatment to manage pain and restore function and flexibility. At Jamaica Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, we teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises that can help strengthen the body, manage pain, and restore mobility and function. These exercises also promote natural healing in the body. Many of our physical therapy exercises can be performed at home, and this form of treatment allows our patients to be active participants in their recovery. Here are some common conditions that physical therapy is used to treat:
- Auto Accident Injuries
- Muscle Strains and Sprains
- Shoulder impingements.
- Back, Knee, Shoulder, and Neck Pain
- Post-Surgical Pain
- Acute, Subacute, and Chronic Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Our team will evaluate your symptoms during your first session to determine the root cause of your complaints. After this evaluation, your physical therapist will discuss a plan of action with you. At Jamaica Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, our goal is to help patients achieve their health and wellness goals and return to a level of function that allows them to enjoy their lives free from pain. As a patient, you will be an active participant in your healing process.
