You’ve gone to see a medical doctor for an injury or ongoing condition, and it’s been recommended that you make an appointment for physical therapy. Now you’re wondering: What exactly is physical therapy, and how will it help me heal?
The physical therapists at Nevada Rehabilitation Centers provide an array of treatments, exercises and stretching regimens to relieve pain caused by an injury, an illness or a condition that has developed over a long period of time. We guide people of all ages and physical abilities in becoming attuned to their bodies and in gaining strength, mobility and balance. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to the work we do. Each body is different, and so we customize our treatment plans to fit each individual we treat.
Some of the treatments we apply are manual, or hands-on therapy, ultrasound to encourage soft tissue healing, and electric stimulation to soothe injured muscles. Perhaps most importantly, we educate our patients on the role they play in healing and staying healthy in the days and years ahead. The work we do doesn’t end in our facility; we prepare each patient to take what they’ve learned home with them to maintain and increase their fitness.
Our physical therapists are all fully licensed health professionals with advanced training in evaluating and aligning and the body’s mechanics to ensure that the joints and muscles are working together in harmony. Our staff provides unrivaled personal attention when it comes to making each patient feel comfortable and confident, no matter what their fitness level is when they first arrive.
Whether you are recovering from a stroke, surgery, a sports injury, an accident, or want to gain better balance, strength and flexibility, the physical therapists at Nevada Rehabilitation Centers can guide you on the path to recovery and optimal fitness. Please contact our office today to arrange an evaluation.
