HOWDO I KNOWPHYSICAL THERAPYWILLWORK FORME?
It is true that surgery is unavoidable in some patients, if the condition is severe enough. However, there are several studies and testimonials that prove physical therapy is successful in the treatment of pain to the point where, in many cases, surgery is unnecessary. According to a study done by the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), physical therapy is just as effective as surgery in patients with meniscal tears and arthritis of the knee. In this study, 351 patients aged 45 or older who fell under the categories of those conditions were randomly split into two groups, being “those who received surgery and post-operative physical therapy treatments,” and “those who received physical therapy alone.” Those given the sole standard physical therapy treatment plans were also given the option of “crossing over” to surgical treatment if they did not notice any significant improvements to their condition. After six months, 30% of patients opted to receive surgery; however, 70% stayed with their standardized physical therapy regimen, reporting improvement. Within the 6-12 month time frame of the study, those patients who received physical therapy treatment alone showed similar signs of improvement to those that received both surgery and physical therapy.
