Physical Therapy Q & A

What is the purpose of physical therapy?

Physical therapy is an indispensable treatment tool. It helps restore and maintain physical function and mobility, along with helping you avoid future injuries and increasing physical performance.

Physical therapy is customized to your condition to help you achieve the best health results.

Who benefits from physical therapy?

Many conditions benefit from physical therapy. The doctors at Health East Medical Alliance will often recommend it following surgery or for:

  • Hand problems like trigger finger and carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Podiatric problems like plantar fasciitis and ankle instability
  • Musculoskeletal dysfunction, including back pain
  • Neurological problems like neuropathy
  • Orthopedic problems like rotator cuff injury and fractures
  • Sports injuries, including tendinitis, sprains, and Achilles tendon pain
  • Work injuries


Your provider at Health East Medical Alliance evaluates your condition and determines if physical therapy is for you. They then set you up with qualified therapists at each office and communicate directly with your therapist to get you the best, most appropriate care.

What are the benefits of physical therapy?

Physical therapy is an essential part of many treatment plans for foot, ankle, wrist, and hand problems, orthopedic needs, spine healing, and chronic pain. When physical therapy is part of your care plan, it helps you:

  • Avoid surgery or recover more quickly from it
  • Manage your pain without opioids
  • Improve your mobility and movement
  • Recover from injury
  • Improve balance
  • Prevent compensatory injuries


Physical therapy helps restore movement and heal injury so you can get back to the activities you enjoy.

What should I expect during physical therapy?

Your physical therapist first gathers information about your illness or injury to determine the best treatment. Depending on your particular condition, they’ll use gentle physical tests to evaluate your:

  • Strength
  • Range of motion
  • Balance
  • Flexibility
  • Joint mobility
  • Pain levels
  • Overall mobility


Your treatment plan can include joint mobilization exercises, manual therapy like massage, strength training, and mobility training. Your therapist can use heat, ice, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation too.
