“Whether it is discomfort from osteoarthritis, chronic back pain or an injury, losing the ability to move easily and without pain can be agonizing,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA. “October is National Physical Therapy month and a great time to highlight the important role physical therapy treatment plays in helping people of all ages manage pain and restore mobility to live happier, healthier lives.”
The Goal of Physical Therapy - Physical therapy is a type of treatment that aims to help people suffering from different health problems feel better and move easier. A skilled physical therapist can improve and even restore physical function making daily tasks and everyday activities easier and less painful. In addition, the right physical therapy program can expedite recovery from injury or surgery, helping patients resume pre-injury activities faster. Physical therapists are qualified health care professionals trained in a variety of specialized areas like muscle and joints, nerves, heart and blood vessels or lungs and breathing.
How Does It Work? - Physical therapy treatment programs are tailored to fit the specific needs of the patient, but generally involve a combination of a variety of different therapies. In efforts to increase flexibility, strength and endurance, treatment may involve stretching, light exercise, even swimming. In addition, a licensed therapist may use muscle manipulation, electrical stimulation and ultrasound. During rehabilitation, patients meet for regular sessions and can expect to undergo a variety of different treatments.
Home Nursing for Professional, Caring Help - Regardless of good intention, family members are simply not prepared to adequately fulfill the unique needs of someone needing professional physical therapy. In addition to a professional physical therapist, home nurses can also help with physical therapy either by working with a physical therapist or supplementing the care that is already being provided. Home nurses can also assist with a wide range of tasks and every day activities. Relying on the additional helping hand of a certified home nurse provides peace of mind that a loved one is getting the care they need. And that makes challenging situations easier and less stressful.
