Why Physical Therapy
Physical Therapy as a 1st Step
While surgery may be the best course of treatment for certain diagnoses, evidence indicates physical therapists can offer an alternative in many situations.
At Emery Physical Therapy, we agree that reviewing conservative options prior to surgery is a hallmark of good care.
Physical therapy is a conservative care treatment option for many individuals; this conservative option also helps local surgeons find the best surgical candidates who have the best outcomes.
While recognizing that medication is an essential component in the management of many acute and chronic conditions, physical therapists can provide an alternative to the long-term use of medications for the management of pain and certain other health conditions.
