With the physical therapy and corrective exercises, I can tell that my back feels great and I am free of pain. Also, I want to say thank you to all the people that helped me to get better and gave me such a great experience.” - S.J. Helped me eliminate the pain and stiffness in my knees! “I would like to thank the staff at ReQuest Physical Therapy for all their help. They created a program that helped me eliminate the pain and stiffness in my knees. They came highly recommended and I can now say they are the best.” - G.F. 6.5 Reasons Why Physical Therapy Is Beneficial 1. You are experiencing pain. Physical therapists understand the body. We understand that you’re in pain for a reason and there are two things we treat. We treat the pain so you feel better and we treat the mechanics so the pain doesn’t ever return. 2. You are an athlete. Whether you need to recover from or prevent a sports injury, physical therapists understand how different sports can increase your risk for specific injuries (such as stress fractures for distance runners). They can design appropriate recovery or prevention exercise programs for you to ensure a safe return to your sport. 3. You are afraid of falling. If you are at high risk for falls, therapists will provide exercises that safely and carefully challenge your balance as a way to mimic real-life situations. When the balance problem is caused by one’s vestibular system, physical therapists can perform specific maneuvers to restore proper vestibular function and reduce and eliminate symptoms of dizziness or vertigo. 4. Your work at a desk all day. Few things are as unhealthy as sitting at a desk all day, every day. A physical therapist can help repair damage that has already occurred to a person’s neck, spine and hips as well as teach tactics that will prevent any permanent damage from occurring. 5. You have experienced an injury. Depending upon the nature of the accident, a specific treatment plan will be designed to help the patient realize the best recovery possible. We gladly accept most insurances, providing a great LOW COST SOLUTION to restore your pain-free movement!

6. You are recovering from surgery. If you doctor has prescribed physical therapy it is because it will be a key part of your recuperation. • To promote healing is the most common reason doctors prescribe physical therapy after surgery; whether to minimize scar tissue or retrain you muscles a therapist ensures that your body heals properly from the operation. • Surgeries on the lower extremities require physical therapy to regain mobility (think your knees and hips). • Doing the necessary rehabilitation after surgery will help the body recover faster that if left to its own devices. 6.5 Our mission at ReQuest Physical Therapy is to get you back to doing the things you love to do.
