DO I NEED PHYSICAL THERAPY?
Find Out What Physical Therapy Can Do For You
Being active is essential to being healthy. But if pain and injury prevent you from achieving full strength and range of motion, physical therapy can help you get back to doing the activities you enjoy.
Our physical therapists have received special training for rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal system. This includes pediatrics, geriatrics, special needs, and rehabilitation from injury. Thus, our physical therapists know how to get your body – every body – working again.
With the combination of an evaluation by a therapist and our multidisciplinary setting, you will experience a well-rounded treatment plan that accomplishes the goals set by you and your therapist. Physical therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care is a powerful combination of treatment. This can provide results superior to therapy or chiropractic care alone. At Williams Integracare we have the unique opportunity to provide both physical therapy and chiropractic care to you in one convenient Sartell location.
From acute auto accidents to chronic wear and tear on the joints of the body, you deserve to get back to leading an active lifestyle.
Physical Therapy can help you be the healthiest you can be.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between physical therapy and occupational therapy?
Physical therapy is focused on helping patients move properly and manage their pain as they recover from an injury or surgery. Occupational therapists help patients regain or develop the skills to do everyday activities like bathing or getting dressed in the morning.
Why is physical therapy important after surgery?
Your goal when you have surgery is to improve mobility. However, after surgery, you likely find that you are moving a bit slower than before the procedure. Physical therapy can help improve power, mobility, and flexibility by getting you moving in a safe and controlled manner with the help of an experienced physical therapist.
Working with a physical therapist can help reduce swelling and inflammation following your surgery and put you on track to get moving at your best.
Do I need a referral to see a physical therapist?
Most insurance policies will require patients to have a referral from a medical provider or chiropractor prior to seeing a physical therapist. We recommend you obtain a referral, either from one of our providers or a provider at another facility before you start physical therapy.
By first seeing a medical provider or chiropractor you can find out if you are a good candidate for physical therapy. They will serve as another beneficial resource in your care plan. The multi-discipline approach of Integracare allows our physical therapists to consult directly with their colleagues in our family practice and chiropractic department if they have questions about your care history. This streamlined approach to care helps keep all parties better informed about your recovery progress.
