Physical Therapy Benefits The Whole Family
Physical therapy benefits the whole family. From children to seniors, physical therapy can help you to maintain balance and improve strength, helping you to get better at daily skills and live life more fully. Although physical therapy can help you recover from injury or after surgery or stroke, there are also many more benefits to physical therapy.
For each age and stage of life, here is how physical therapy benefits the whole family:
Physical therapy is typically recommended for children with developmental delays, genetic disorders, birth defects and many other conditions. How do you know if your child can benefit from physical therapy? Physical therapy can help children to build strength, improve mobility, improve range of motion, prevent injuries and more.
A physical therapist can assist your child through exercises and activities to help them in completing their daily activities and gain basic movement skills and build strength. Physical therapy can help your child improve their quality of life.
If as a parent, you are active and love participating in sports, activities and hobbies, you may find yourself in need of physical therapy at some point, especially if you have sustained an injury. Physical therapy as a way to help you recover from sports injuries is common.
A lesser known use of physical therapy is for pregnancy. Physical therapy can help you prepare for labor or recover from it. It can also help you to manage the effects and discomfort of pregnancy such as lower back pain, sciatica and more.
Physical therapy can also help you to manage age related conditions, recover from surgery or stroke and improve balance, preventing falls as we age.
In addition to physical therapy, chiropractic care can play a huge role in the health of the whole family.
