What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy represents a specialized healthcare discipline employing exercises, manual manipulation, and therapeutic modalities to enhance health, prevent illness, and restore lost motor skills while normalizing bodily functions.

While commonly associated with addressing musculoskeletal issues, physical therapy at Bayshore Medical Group adopts a broader rehabilitation perspective, encompassing:

  1. Facilitating natural healing of injuries.

  2. Building body strength to prevent re-injury.

  3. Tackling structural weaknesses contributing to injuries.

  4. Maintaining alignment in your body's support systems.

This comprehensive rehabilitation approach optimizes your body's inherent healing capabilities, directing them towards the injury for proper recovery. Moreover, it enables a return to an active lifestyle with minimized discomfort and reduced risk of further injury.

Our holistic methodology considers the intricate interplay of your body's components, recognizing the need for harmonious functioning. With a multidisciplinary approach, our physical therapy providers acknowledge the influence of your mind, body, and environment on overall wellness, ensuring a holistic treatment for our patients.


What treatments are used for physical therapy?

Bayshore Medical Group's rehabilitation program is designed with dual objectives to ensure a fully customized plan for you:

  1. Alleviating any pain experienced and facilitating the restoration of full function. This involves ensuring proper spinal alignment and enhancing muscle strength, mobility, flexibility, coordination, and balance.

  2. Recognizing the critical role of spinal adjustments in injuries, regardless of their location in the body. These adjustments enable the body to signal the brain for healing resources without disruptions caused by blockages along the primary nerve pathway.

Following spinal adjustments, various rehabilitation methods are employed to prepare the body for movement. The integration of these approaches allows us to address a wide range of injuries. Our dedicated team offers services and treatments such as:

  • Active Release Techniques (ART)

  • Therapeutic Exercise

  • Electrical Muscle Stimulation

  • Nerve/Spine Decompression

  • Stretching

  • Corrective Exercises

  • Traction

At Bayshore Medical Group, we prioritize addressing symptoms directly rather than masking them, ensuring a faster recovery. Our goal is to get you back to doing what you love!

When to See a Physical Therapist

If you have sustained an injury, whether it be from an accident or strenuous activity, seeing a doctor right away after the incident is important.

Your physician will advise on the timing for a physical therapy evaluation. It is vital to promptly report any new pain or discomfort, particularly if accompanied by swelling or bruising. Additionally, seek consultation if you experience escalating or persistent pain.

Early detection and intervention significantly enhance the likelihood of a complete recovery from injuries.

How Long Does Physical Therapy Take to Work?

Physical therapists advise individuals with chronic pain to abstain from using their affected extremities until the completion of treatment. While this guidance is effective for acute injuries, it may not universally apply to conditions leading to persistent pain and disability.

The onset of relief can vary, with some experiencing immediate benefits, while others require more extensive care over several weeks. The pace of recovery is influenced by the extent of damage sustained during the injury and the prompt initiation of rehabilitation for the affected joints and muscles.

Diverse tissues exhibit distinct healing rates. For instance, ligaments and cartilage typically require 10 to 12 weeks for full strength restoration, bones about 8 weeks, tendons up to 6 weeks, muscles typically regain 80% of their original strength after 3 weeks, and connective tissue recovery may extend over a more prolonged period.

Physical therapy plays a pivotal role in any recovery plan, whether you're dealing with pain from an injury, recuperating post-surgery, or managing a disorder affecting your mobility. Physical therapists employ diverse techniques for treating both acute injuries, such as sprains, and chronic conditions like arthritis. They guide you through movements to enhance muscle function, expand range of motion, and improve posture, ultimately reducing symptoms like stiffness, soreness, and pain.

Additionally, physical therapy proves beneficial for individuals needing to regain mobility following surgery, diseases, accidents, sports injuries, congenital disorders, and more. Collaborating with various healthcare professionals such as physicians, nurses, chiropractors, occupational therapists, massage therapists, and athletic trainers is a common practice for physical therapists.
