3 reasons you want PT to be a key part of your chronic pain care plan

Chronic Pain Care Plan

If you are dealing with chronic pain, you’re not alone. In the U.S., approximately 20% of people experience chronic pain. The causes of chronic pain can vary. But what most of the people who suffer from this condition share is that they describe their pain as occurring “most days” or “every day.”

Physical therapy is an effective solution for many people dealing with this type of condition, for multiple reasons. Keep reading to learn about three specific reasons why you should integrate physical therapy into your chronic pain care plan.

3 reasons you should want physical therapy to be an essential part of your chronic pain care plan

  • So that you know you will recover safely — Seeking care from a physical therapist is one great way to ensure that during your journey toward chronic pain relief, you will recover in a way that is safe for you. Your physical therapist will work within the limits of your pain threshold during injury recovery. During each session, your physical therapist will do their best to ensure that you can improve your condition without jeopardizing any other aspects of your health.
  • So that your likelihood of future injury is minimized — Not only is physical therapy great for ensuring your recovery is carried out as safely as possible, but it also can prevent injury in the future. Physical therapy can ultimately decrease the likelihood of injury to that same area after recovery.
  • To prevent the other symptoms of chronic pain — It’s pretty commonly understood that physical therapy can help alleviate pain, but what most people don’t think about is that it can prevent other conditions that result from chronic pain. Physical therapy can be effective for preventing stiffness, loss of muscle strength or mobility, and loss of overall function.
