What Is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a common practice that offers diverse benefits. Generally speaking, it involves targeted stretches and exercises to treat specific concerns. It may be recommended to:

  • Enhance mobility
  • Promote better functions of the body
  • Reduce chronic pain

Physical therapy for the back may be recommended to address injuries, conditions, or other natural changes. It may be recommended as a standalone treatment practice, or it may be included to help prepare for or recover from a more involved procedure.

If you have long-lasting muscle pain, myofascial release may help. This therapy targets the layer of tissue that covers your muscles. It’s called the “fascia.” It can become tight, and lead to sensitive places called “trigger points.” Myofascial release can help relax your fascia to reduce your pain.

Most people who are experiencing chronic pain and a lack of mobility may be able to benefit from this type of treatment.
