Physical Therapy Q & A

Better Body Solutions

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a type of therapy designed to help a patient with various physical problems that cause pain and limitations, especially in body movements. The purpose of therapy is to alleviate the symptoms associated with the problem and improve the patient’s overall physical condition. In most cases, Dr. Giraldo will schedule physical therapy sessions on a regular basis so that the patient can gradually build strength over time.


When is physical therapy beneficial?

Physical therapy can be beneficial to many different types of patients. For example, patients who have lost mobility or function because of an accident or injury can often benefit from physical therapy. Patients who struggle with chronic pain can also reduce their symptoms by participating in physical therapy on a regular basis. Physical therapy is also useful for patients who want to reduce the risk of future injuries.


How does Dr. Giraldo approach physical therapy?

Dr. Giraldo recommends physical therapy to patients who need to build strength and stability, improve mobility, and/or alleviate chronic pain. During the first session, she begins by evaluating the patient’s condition carefully and developing a customized treatment plan. She will implement this plan over future treatment sessions. In most cases, physical therapy will increase in intensity over time so that the patient can develop more strength.

Physical therapy is often used in conjunction with other types of care in order to improve results. For example, Dr. Giraldo may recommend a comprehensive treatment plan that includes physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic care.


Are there risks?

All treatments come with risks. However, Better Body Solutions has a long history of providing safe, effective physical therapy to patients. Patients who follow instructions both during physical therapy sessions and at home shouldn't develop any complications because of the therapy. In fact, most patients begin feeling better after their first few physical therapy sessions.
