When recovering from a surgery or injury, physical therapy is an important part of the recovery process – helping you get out of pain and back to full strength in the shortest amount of time possible. LaGrange Medical Center in Countryside, IL, offers a comprehensive list of physical therapy treatments to effectively restore use, mobility and strength of your muscles and joints.
Physical Therapy Rehabilitation
Physical therapy rehabilitation provides specific exercises and stretches that can improve flexibility and strength while possibly reducing the risk of re-injury after a surgery or injury. Physical therapy can also shorten recovery time.
Your physical therapist will teach you exercises you can do at home to encourage proper recovery. You will also learn:
• Proper lifting techniques
• Proper posture and alignment
• Weight management skills
These skills could prevent future injury, even while you continue to perform your job as normal.
