Physical Therapy Can Offer A New Release On Life

An illness, injury or certain types of surgery can leave an individual unable to perform many of the things they were previously able to do.


  1. An illness, injury or certain types of surgery can leave an individual unable to perform many of the things they were previously able to do. Working with a physical therapist can give an individual a release on life and regain strength and mobility again. Heart surgery or a stroke can leave the muscles in an unfavorable condition and the patient very weak. A Colorado Springs therapist will develop a plan that is specifically tailored to an individual's needs. Therapy does not offer a one-size-fits-all approach. Every person is unique in how they progress and regain their strength and mobility. A therapist will work with the physician in order to heal your body.

    Physical therapy is considered a restorative treatment for the body. It permits someone to have the best physical health they're capable of. It can dramatically improve the quality of someone's life by improving their functioning. A therapist can determine someone's activity limitations and will not ask them to do anything that may make them fearful or injure them further. They play the most vital role after someone's been injured or had surgery. They understand the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, pulmonary and other systems in the body and can help an individual heal.

    A muscle that was torn may need to have surgery and then require therapy. In some cases, a torn muscle may require therapy to strengthen the surrounding muscles before the surgery takes place. Therapy that requires exercise on a treadmill can benefit from the latest technology. An Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill permits an individual to use the treadmill with less pain. Another benefit of this type of treadmill is that it can dramatically reduce the chance of the individual becoming injured further. These are a terrific tool for:

    Rehabilitating a hip, knee, ankle or foot.

    Strengthening for neurological patients.

    Losing weight.

    Conditioning and strengthening the muscles with less chance of falling.

    Rehabilitation after a surgery for a joint replacement.

    Individuals who are required to lose weight to improve their health can benefit from the Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill. It permits them to exercise with the feeling of what it would be like if they were at their ideal weight. It makes walking easier on a patient who is obese because they're not placing so much stress on their body. This helps someone to stay with a therapy program instead of giving up because of difficulties they may encounter. Great Moves Physical Therapy offers caring and compassionate therapy for anyone that's in need of rehabilitation their body.
