Reports from the medical field show that the number of people suffering from serious injuries and medical conditions has surged by almost 60 percent over the past decade. These include sports and work-related injuries as well as respiratory difficulties, musculoskeletal disorders, lymphedema, limited range of motion, and chronic pain to name a few. Ongoing studies indicate that — physical therapy can be the key to helping patients overcome those issues and many others. With this in mind, Maggie Wetzel of Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness has launched the practice's latest efforts to partner with patients in fostering their well-being.
"Physical therapy is an effective treatment option for a wide range of medical conditions," said Wetzel. "Most people believe it's primarily designed for injuries and post-surgical care, but few things could be further from the truth. Our services can be an integral component in treating headaches, back and neck pain, osteoporosis, chronic bronchitis, vertigo, and numerous other issues. Our team is dedicated to helping people understand how physical therapy can be essential in their overall treatment plans and ensuring they're able to make the most of its benefits."
According to recent reports, physical therapy can reduce patients' treatment costs by more than 70 percent in some cases. It can also boost recovery rates while reducing the amount of time needed to recover from injuries or mitigate the effects of certain medical conditions. An estimated 40 percent of patients who receive physical therapy have found this type of treatment more effective than prescription medications. Despite those figures, only about 10 percent of patients who could benefit from this type of treatment participate in it.
Additionally, Occupational Therapy has proven effective for a range of patients. This treatment option aids patients in overcoming pain, injuries, disabilities, and other issues that can hamper their daily lives. It has likewise shown significant efficacy for those suffering from stroke, autism, paralysis, and other conditions. In many cases, occupational therapy and physical therapy go hand in hand to offer patients well-rounded treatment plans.
Concluded Wetzel, "We don't treat problems; we treat patients. That means partnering with our patients to promote overall health and improved quality of life. Whether they're looking for work conditioning as part of a Workers Compensation program or hoping to reduce the swelling, discomfort, and difficulties of lymphedema, we're here to help. Anyone interested in taking advantage of all the benefits physical therapy and our other services can provide is encouraged to contact us for a consultation."
