What is Involved with Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy involves a number of pain management manipulation techniques designed to restore function and relieve chronic pain, including:
- Muscle stimulation
- Manipulation of joint and bones
- Manual therapy using hands or tools
Physical therapy and rehabilitation is typically prescribed following an injury or surgery to help restore muscle strength and overall mobility of the affected area. The pain physicians at Pain Recovery Center of Tyler focus on strengthening patients so they “hold” their adjustments and get the maximum benefit from their pain management treatment program.
