What is a Physical Therapist and How Can They Help You Get Better
Physical therapy is a critical process in helping patients recover from injury, accident, or surgery. It involves pain treatment, rebuilding strength and exercise through a continuous, gradual treatment regimen. Physical therapists (or PT ) are highly trained medical professionals that employ these treatments and techniques ( non-pharmaceutical ) to help you feel like yourself again. Here’s how these highly motivated professionals can help you in your recovery.
Pain Treatment After an Injury or Surgery
After you have been discharged from West Boca Medical Center or wherever you received your accident treatment or had surgery, you will likely require the help of a physical therapist to continue to both provide pain treatment and help you regain your strength and range of motion.
Recovering from an injury or accident is a challenging situation. You have a high degree of pain. You worry about the loss of mobility and strength. Our PT’s are very empathetic to your pain and will do all we can to help reduce your pain so you don’t rely fully on medications. We apply modalities and other forms of therapy to give you the best care and reduce your pain as quickly as possible.
Our team of professionals helps make you feel better after your accident by applying ‘modalities’ such as ultrasound, e-stim, heat, therapeutic massage, traction and more. It is critical that you visit our West Boca physical therapy office on a regular, routine basis to get your pain to subside and to ensure your recovery goes as smoothly as possible.

PT as Coach and Teacher
At times, a physical therapy assistant may assist you during your recovery. They help you get onto the road to regaining your independence. Sometimes, we need someone that will encourage us to stay on that road, to help us ‘stick with the program’. Patients can get down on themselves about the lack of progress or things not happening fast enough.
Your physical therapist and their assistantswill encourage you every step of the way. They will talk to you about what is happening and continuously evaluate you to let you know about your progress. They will guide you through exercises to help you regain your muscle strength and range of motion. This goes a long way in helping to improve your mobility and get back to being your ‘old self’ again.
We believe that you can make a comeback starting now. All that you need is encouragement and support to improve your health. Our team of skilled professionals will help you to feel better and reach your long-term goals. The recovery process can be challenging but we are here to help you along the way.
