Physical Therapy Q & A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy at Ortho One Jacksonville uses a series of exercises and stretches to increase musculoskeletal strength and flexibility. It’s a holistic way to reduce pain, improve blood flow, accelerate healing, and prevent future injuries. 

What are the benefits of physical therapy?

Some of the numerous benefits associated with physical therapy at Ortho One Jacksonville include:

  • Increased strength
  • Better flexibility
  • Faster healing
  • Lower risk of reinjury
  • Increased range of motion
  • Improved mobility
  • No downtime

In some cases, choosing physical therapy can help you avoid invasive surgical procedures or pain medicine with addictive properties.

Is physical therapy right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for physical therapy, your physician checks your vital signs and reviews your medical history. They ask about your symptoms and complete a comprehensive physical examination. Your provider might recommend you undergo blood tests, MRIs, CT scans, X-rays, or other imaging procedures to find the root cause of an injury or pain.

You might be a good candidate for physical therapy if you experience:

  • Joint or muscle injuries
  • Prior orthopedic surgery
  • Chronic pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Sports injuries
  • Automobile accident injuries
  • Arthritis

Your provider might recommend you try physical therapy or other conservative treatments before undergoing invasive surgical procedures.

What should I expect during physical therapy sessions?

When you arrive at Ortho One Jacksonville for physical therapy, friendly staff members greet you. Your therapist helps you complete injury or disease-specific strength and flexibility exercises that accelerate healing and relieve chronic pain. They might recommend using your body weight as resistance, exercise bands, assisted stretching, or weights in some cases.

Your physical therapy team shows you exercises to complete from home between in-office sessions. Your provider might recommend you also ice your injury, wear a brace, take medications, receive injections, try regenerative medicine, or undergo orthopedic surgery in addition to physical therapy to optimize results.
