CONDITIONS THAT PHYSICAL THERAPY HELPS IN ST. LOUIS PARK

Physical Therapy helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physical Therapy or "medically directed rehab" helps restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Our St. Louis Park patients include accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as low-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries, and sports injuries.
Treatment often includes exercise; especially for patients who have been immobilized or who lack flexibility, strength, or endurance. Physical Therapy helps encourage patients to use their muscles to increase their flexibility and range of motion. More advanced exercises focus on improving strength, balance, coordination, and endurance. The goal is to improve how an individual functions at work and at home.

Physical Therapy also helps treat a wide range of patients; such as pediatrics, geriatrics, orthopedics, sports medicine, neurology, and cardiopulmonary physiotherapy.


FAQ'S ABOUT PHYSICAL THERAPY

Do I need to see a physician before I can receive Physical Therapy?

  • Maybe. Some private insurance companies no longer require a physician’s referral for Physical Therapy. However, some Physical Therapy patients are prescribed treatment from their physician prior to their therapy being scheduled. Our staff can help you determine if you need a referral prior to scheduling your Physical Therapy appointment.

What is the difference between chiropractor and a physical therapist?

  • Our Physical Therapists perform a comprehensive analysis of range of motion, including identifying the joints involved, tissue limitations, muscular imbalances and structural pathologies. A chiropractor will treat the spine and are able to order special tests like X-rays, MRIs and blood tests.
