Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Tailored For You
While diseases affecting the organs and bones are quite well studied, conditions involving the muscles and nerves are still overlooked by many doctors unfamiliar with physical therapy & rehabilitation. Visiting the wrong office could leave you misdiagnosed and on a treatment plan that does little to help you. If you are experiencing inflammation and pain from conditions such as sciatica, myofascial tension, and migraines, call our Goose Creek team to find the cause and treat it as quickly as possible. At Back 2 Health Physical Medicine, our physical therapy and rehabilitation experts will check your entire body for potential causes rather than writing it off as a mystery.
Who Needs Rehabilitation And Physical Therapy?
The practice of physical therapy deals primarily with impairments to the musculature of the body, but it also includes hands-on treatments for nerve issues and even psychological issues. The careful manipulation of the spine and the muscles of the back can help you heal from a surprising range of injuries and illnesses. Most people first learn about rehabilitation after a car accident or other traumatic event. When a muscle is torn or a major bone is broken, patients usually need to undergo careful stretching and training as it heals for optimal results. However, trying to handle your own rehabilitation can be risky. Our team uses multiple diagnostic tools to monitor your injuries as you heal to ensure your treatment is helping and not hurting.
Both teen and adult athletes seek out our physical therapy services, especially if they are in a competitive sport like football or soccer. Immediate care can help a minor sprain keep from becoming a more serious problem, especially if we can find a weakness or misalignment that led to the sprain in the first place.

What Treatments Are Used For Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation?
When a patient comes in with pain from an old injury or an unknown source, we have a number of tools we can use to reduce the irritation. These treatments are also useful in restoring flexibility and range of motion. Simple stretching is used for nearly every issues, but further care can include vibration exercise, spinal adjustments, other chiropractic care, heat and cold therapy to reach deep tissue, and massage to relieve tight muscles.
