Physical Therapy

Chiropractor Dr. Gary Olson offers the opportunity to improve your situation and reduce pain in your back or neck. A chiropractor offers the tools to help your body adjust and recover after a sports injury or any other injury that requires physical therapy. Depending on the situation, physical therapy offers different tools to help with long-term healing and recovery goals.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy refers to a treatment program that specifically helps individuals regain mobility, balance and flexibility after an injury. It is used for pain relief after an injury, surgical procedure or similar situation that requires active treatment to help regain your physical abilities.

The types of tools that physical therapists like Dr. Gary Olson, DC, BS at the Long Island Spine and Sports Injury Center offer include:

  • Exercises to strengthen the muscles
  • Chiropractic treatments for better alignment and posture
  • Massage therapy
  • Stretches to help improve flexibility
  • Balance exercises for better overall balance and mobility

Physical therapy uses several tools to help improve physical abilities, mobility and balance. The goal of therapy is helping relieve back pain and neck pain while also reducing the risk of injuries in the future. Sports injuries, in particular, require careful therapy treatments so that individuals heal from the injury and can get back on the field or into the game without taking a risk of future injuries.

Reducing Pain with Physical Therapy

Physical pain from an injury, surgery or chronic condition harms your quality of life and leads to discomfort in normal tasks. By going through physical therapy, you learn different ways to manage the pain or discomfort associated with the injuries so that you can focus on enjoying your lifestyle and personal goals.

The ways that physical therapy can specifically help reduce pain depends on the situation and the cause of the pain. For example, stretching and massage helps with muscle pains. On the other hand, individuals can benefit from infrared or cold laser therapy when facing problems with chronic inflammation, joint pain or certain forms of back and neck pain.

At the Long Island Spine and Sports Injury Center, we develop a personalized treatment plan based on the severity of your injuries and the underlying discomforts so that you can move easily. By working on a personalized plan of action, you have the tools to adjust to your current situation and improve your overall lifestyle. We also help you regain mobility throughout your body so that you can enjoy activities or hobbies.

Pain impacts the way that you manage your lifestyle and enjoy hobbies. When you notice severe neck or back pain, or when an injury occurs, you want to work with a professional chiropractor and physical therapist so that you can get back to your life.
