Research shows that exercise and physical therapy play a key role in treating and preventing recurring pain and treating injury. Manual physical therapy is a comprehensive therapy approach that includes assessment, treatment, and prevention. Proper treatment promotes strength, flexibility, and endurance—the three keys to sustained well-being. At Oasis Physical Therapy, your 99338 physical therapy, we maintain that exercise and/or manual and movement therapy should be a part of every patient’s treatment. Whether you recently injured yourself, require rehabilitation after surgery, or are suffering from pain, physical therapy is a non-invasive modality that restores function, strength, balance, and diminishes the cause of your pain.
There are times, however, when surgery is your best option. Your 99338 physical therapist will carefully review your medical history and conduct a comprehensive physical exam to determine if surgery is indicated or if you should be seen by a medical specialist. Surgery is an option for correcting the underlying problem such as a herniated disc in the back or a bunion on the foot. Once surgery has been performed, recovery from surgery should include exercise and physical therapy. Although this may seem obvious, many surgeons will prescribe oral medication for post-surgical pain relief, but often overlook prescribing a specific course of physical therapy. The goal of physical therapy after surgery is to address the pain, restore full function and range of motion, strengthen weakened muscles, restore balance, and teach you proper body mechanics and lifting strategies to prevent another injury. Our physical therapists will also give you exercises to do at home to maintain the success you have achieved.
At Oasis Physical Therapy, our care continues long after your scheduled appointments. The 99338 physical therapists offer lectures and seminars to help educate our patients about injury prevention and health maintenance. Our community outreach is another indicator of our commitment to your health.
