Many people think that physical therapy (PT) is only for people coming out of major surgeries who need muscle rehabilitation. This is not always the case.
Seemingly innocuous injuries and generalized pain that impair movement or the ability to complete normal activities may also require PT. People who have experienced a loss of normal movement or range of motion may be candidates for a physical therapy regimen.
Who can Undergo Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy can be undertaken by people of all ages, from children to adults. The PT experience, however, can vary greatly depending on the age of the patient. PT can also be used to speed up the recovery process following major health issues like strokes, heart attacks, and Parkinson’s-related complications.
Anyone who needs to restore functionality or a degree of normalacy/independence to their daily life may be a candidate for PT.
