North Penn Physical Therapy – Our Mission
What should you look for when deciding to come in for physical therapy treatment? What kind of results can you expect? Our Mission at North Penn Physical Therapy
is to help answer your questions and create the kind of healing environment that you need. With our private rooms and one on one service, we try to make you feel comfortable so you achieve the best results. Physical therapy is an all-natural method for pain relief, or to recover from injury. With the current opioid crisis, people are seeking alternative ways to relieve pain without drugs or chemicals. The exercises and techniques that you learn in therapy can make a more permanent change to your body. Many times, pills only mask the pain rather than correcting it.
Why is one on one care important?
With costs of medical care on the rise, our mission is to provide personalized, one on one treatment in a professional and private environment. We want you to reach therapy goals in the fastest, most cost efficient way, and with the highest level of customer satisfaction. Private rooms allow you to work individually with your therapist, and to focus on healing. If you are living with a chronic condition, the knowledge you acquire can help you manage it more effectively. This can potentially save you hundreds of dollars in other medical expenses.
What are examples of the conditions that can be treated by physical therapy?
Physical therapy treatment can help a variety of conditions
. These range from recovery from surgeries, like knee replacements, to general muscle pain or weakness. For example, do you have neck or back pain, but did not suffer an injury? Many neck and back issues are due to years of poor posture during normal activities like sitting and sleeping. Physical therapy can address these issues and prevent them from getting worse. Too often, the course of treatment will start with medications, then progress to other more painful procedures, including surgery, if the problem persists.
Physical therapy is also successful for treating vertigo or balance disorders, and treatment can help to reduce dizziness and prevent falls. As we age, our balance can decline for a variety of reasons. This can cause a fear of falling, and many people become less active as this occurs. Our balance training programs can help you to stay active and improve your mobility. In some cases, patients that have acute vertigo – also known as BPPV – can get relief from dizziness symptoms in just one or two visits.
Healing and prevention
Did you know that if you suffer an ankle sprain, you are over 90% more likely to sprain that same ankle again? Luckily, there are a few easy exercises that you can learn in physical therapy which can prevent it from happening again. During physical therapy treatment, you can heal your current injury, but also learn valuable information that can help injuries from coming back. Knee pain, especially from osteoarthritis, is another condition that responds well to physical therapy treatment. While there is no cure for arthritis, physical therapy can help strengthen your knee and improve your mobility. This can possibly delay the need for more painful interventions, like surgery.
