Interested In Going To Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is often used to help patients recover from an injury, but can also help reduce some of the symptoms of various health conditions, such as arthritis. Special exercises, stretches, and therapeutic techniques can improve flexibility, reduce pain, and improve mobility. Dr. Jonathan Bullock, Dr. Amy Kolesar, and Dr. Glen Nisivoccia, the experienced doctors at Frankfort Chiropractic & Physical Therapy in Mokena, IL, provide physical therapy that can contribute to an improved quality of life. 

Conditions Treated with Physical Therapy:

Many people are aware that physical therapy is used to aid in recovering from various injuries, but it can also help with managing the symptoms of certain medical and health conditions. Examples of conditions we often treat with physical therapy at our Mokena, IL, practice include:

  • Back pain 
  • Arthritis pain

  • Work, auto, or sports injuries

Benefits of Physical Therapy

The benefits of physical therapy are numerous. By restoring function and mobility and reducing pain, physical therapy can improve your overall quality of life. Some of the many benefits of going to physical therapy include:

  • Diminished pain and discomfort 
  • Increased flexibility and strength 
  • Improved mobility and increased function  
  • Helps manage age-related problems
  • Improved balance, which can help prevent falls
  • Aids in recovery of injuries or physical trauma
  • Reduces risk of further injury or trauma
  • Management of symptoms associated with certain medical conditions 

Another significant benefit of physical therapy is that it can potentially help you avoid surgery, especially when recovering from a physical injury or trauma. In situations when surgery is necessary, physical therapy can aid in post-surgical recovery. Since it helps with pain management, physical therapy can also reduce the need for pain-relief medications, particularly following surgery or while recovering from a work, auto, or sports injury. 

Physical therapy can help in so many ways, from injury recovery to pain management. If you are interested in going to physical therapy in Mokena, IL, schedule a consultation with Dr. Bullock, Dr. Kolesar, or Dr. Nisivoccia by calling Frankfort Chiropractic & Physical Therapy at (708) 478-3000.
