Physical Therapy Q & A

What health benefits will I gain from physical therapy?

Physical therapy restores optimal strength and function to patients living with chronic pain and degenerative disease, as well as those recovering from musculoskeletal injuries and orthopedic surgery.

The treatments you receive during physical therapy alleviate pain and support healing by:

  • Increasing blood flow
  • Diminishing inflammation
  • Restoring muscle strength
  • Increasing range of motion
  • Promoting flexibility
  • Rebuilding balance
  • Improving body mechanics

Your physical therapist at Sensor Medica Clinic performs an exam and evaluates your musculoskeletal health and overall health.

At Sensor Medica Clinic, your therapist has access to cutting-edge technology to evaluate your balance and gait when needed to plan your optimal physical therapy program. 

With their sensor treadmill, sensor platform, and 3D motion analysis, they can precisely assess your biomechanics.

Then they create a plan that meets your goals, whether you want to return to competitive sports, lower your risk of falls, or get back to your daily walk.
