PHYSICAL THERAPY

HOW DOES PHYSICAL THERAPY WORK?

Physical Therapy addresses pain and limits in range of motion through special tools and self-management education. Perhaps more significantly, physical therapy helps you restore control in a system where you may feel a loss of control.

Treatment modalities may include therapeutic stabilization programs, and balance and functional restoration tools, as well as the use of heat, cold and electrical current. Successful physical therapy gives you the skills you need to modify your own movements and habits, regain control, and lessen pain.

Treatment modalities frequently include two important approaches: manual physical therapy and therapeutic physical therapy exercise.

SAN FRANCISCO PHYSICAL THERAPY
AT HEALTHWELL

Manual therapy is highly valued at Healthwell as we provide hands on treatment to improve your alignment as well as make sure that your soft tissue is free of scarring or restrictions that may inhibit your movement. You may sense that it feels like “massage” but the specificity of treatment is what differentiates a general massage from our skilled manual therapy.

Therapeutic exercise programs include balance, neuromuscular retraining, stabilization programs, and functional restoration to return you to sports or activities that you require for an active lifestyle. Sometimes we use heat, cold, and electrical current to help with healing.

Home programs are developed from our work together that provide an independent longterm program to keep you healthy. Successful physical therapy gives you the skills you need to modify your own movements and habits, regain control, and lessen pain. Complete services are offered at Healthwell's San Francisco Physical Therapy office as well as our Healdsburg Physical Therapy location.
