Turning to Physical Therapy
Immediately after your injury it’s important that you file a claim with your employer before seeing a doctor. Many doctors will recommend patients utilize physical therapy in order to promote more whole-body healing from work-related injuries. Dr. Raheem and his team provide individualized physical therapy care plans that focus on ways to improve strength, mobility and range of motion in all parts of the body while also reducing pain, swelling and other symptoms. Our goal is to help you get back to work pain-free.
During your evaluation, our chiropractor will assess how often you should come into the office for regular physical therapy. The beginning of your care plan will focus on treating and addressing the symptoms you are experiencing as a result of your injury while also providing you with exercises you can do every day to improve functionality and restore strength and range of motion.
Once this phase is complete, we will focus our attention on strengthening and conditioning exercises that help you to return to the demands of your job while also providing you with the tools you need to reduce your risk for injuries in the future.
