Physical Therapy and Aquatic Therapy
Tailored Physical Therapy Programs to Improve Your Quality of Life
Physical therapy can be highly beneficial when you experience pain or discomfort — whether from an injury, a chronic illness, or simply the effects of aging.
At Brain & Spine Pain Orlando, we provide tailored physical therapy programs to help you deal with your specific situation.
Whether you have decreased mobility, ongoing pain, or an exercise-related injury, we will provide a customized plan to speed up recovery and provide relief.
For example, our treatment programs include aquatic therapy, which can relieve patients suffering from various neuromuscular or musculoskeletal disorders, arthritis, and other chronic pain.
We also provide neurological rehabilitation to assist patients with nervous system diseases, injuries, or disorders. This treatment can help improve the body’s overall function, reduce symptoms, and provide a greater sense of well-being and independence.
No matter your current situation, we can provide a tailored program of physical therapy that can help speed up your recovery, give you much-needed relief, and improve your quality of life.
Benefits of Physical Therapy
Depending on the situation, a customized physical therapy program can aid in recovery of function and reduction of pain, as well as other benefits:
- reduce or eliminate pain
- improve mobility
- recover from a stroke
- avoid surgery
- recover after surgery
- prevent sports-related injuries
- recover from an injury or trauma
- manage a chronic illness
- improve balance and prevent falls
- manage a neurological disease
- recover from falls
- address age-related issues or medical problems
Along with physical intervention, we also provide thorough education on your specific condition and how physical therapy fits into your overall treatment plan.
For some patients, physical therapy may be far too difficult or painful to perform for any length of time. And that can mean recovery can take longer than necessary. Often, in those cases, aquatic therapy can be an effective alternative.
Aquatic therapy offers high resistance physical therapy with the low impact provided by the buoyancy of water. Treatment in temperature-controlled pools puts less pressure on your joints, reduces inflammation, and gives you a safe way to improve your balance and strength.
Aquatic therapy is also an excellent way to increase your overall fitness, improve relaxation, and decrease stress while putting no strain on your joints. So, even if you are not currently dealing with a physical illness or disability, aquatic therapy can be a great way to ensure you remain strong and healthy.
When performed under the guidance of our physical therapist, aquatic therapy can:
- decrease pain
- speed up recovery time
- build muscle strength and endurance
- improve flexibility, mobility, and range of motion
- assist with gait (pattern of walking)
- improve balance and coordination
Neurological Rehabilitation or Neuro Rehab
When you have a neurological disorder or are recovering from a brain injury, daily life can be frustrating and painful. Often, the simple tasks you used to do are no longer so simple, and you have to find new ways of doing things.
That’s where neurological rehabilitation, or neuro rehab, comes in. Neuro rehab can restore function and improve the quality of life for those affected by these impairments or disabilities. The goal is to maximize a person’s ability to take on the tasks of everyday life.
Before we undertake neuro rehab, we perform a thorough analysis using advanced diagnostic tools plus good old-fashioned communication and observation. In this way, we can determine a patient’s exact condition. Then, once we have a diagnosis, we design a tailored treatment program. Some areas we can help include:
An MS diagnosis can mean different things depending on the severity of the disease. In some cases, it can advance rapidly, while in others, it can be milder and progress much slower. Therefore, we treat patients on a case-by-case basis, providing therapies to deal with their specific symptoms. These therapies can include infusion treatments as well as physical therapy focused on MS complications.
Nerve or muscle disorders may include peripheral neuropathy, radiculopathy (pinched nerve), Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and Myasthenia Gravis. With these disorders, it’s vital to focus on building strength, mobility, and endurance while relieving pain. We tailor treatment based on the stage of the disease and whether the patient is in a stable period or a period of relapse.
With movement disorders, a person can have either increased, reduced, or slow movements, which can be voluntary or involuntary. One of the most well-known movement disorders is Parkinson’s disease. However, there are many others. Therapy with movement disorders focuses on improving function, which may include stretching and flexibility, balance work, strength training, and more.
