We seek to keep all our patients "moving in the right direction" at Spinal Rehab Clinics. That starts with a life free from pain. Whether you have a nagging sports injury, chronic pain, or a medical condition that leaves you stiff and sore, you can benefit from physical therapy.
Most commonly prescribed to rehabilitate a body part after an injury, physical therapy can also restore flexibility and mobility, stretch stiff joints and muscles, and alleviate pain caused by our daily activities.
At Spinal Rehab Clinics, your Sauk Rapids, St Cloud area Physical Therapist will prescribe a combination of stretches, gentle exercises, and chiropractic techniques. Patients can often do the stretches and exercises at home.
You may be wondering, is physical therapy right for you? Will it really make a difference in your pain levels?
The only way to find out is to try. Your Spinal Rehab Clinics Physical Therapist will prescribe the necessary treatment protocols in our office as well as, home exercises that will help get you out of pain and back to an active lifestyle. It's not like going to a gym and pushing your body to the limit. You're encouraged to go at your own pace, even if that's slower.
Still not sure if you're a good candidate for physical therapy? Here are some signs you should come in for a consultation:
Our Physical Therapist will, above all else, listen to you. During your first appointment, you should describe your pain and what has caused it. You should also mention how long you've been dealing with the pain and which treatments you've tried (and if any worked).
From there, your Physical Therapist will formulate a short term therapy plan to get you out of pain and a long-term plan to regain your active lifestyle and return you to all of those activities you love to do. As we've mentioned above, the exercises and stretches prescribed are not rigorous by any means. These are meant to slowly build and restore strength and flexibility. You'll also have a reduction in pain and restore function.
