How Long Does It Take to See Results from Physical Therapy?

The answer to this question depends on many factors, including your specific condition, its severity, and the techniques and technologies used by your physical therapist. The typical soft tissue injury takes about four to eight weeks to heal.

What Should I Wear to a Physical Therapy Session?

This is a question you should ask your PT, but in general, you will want to wear clothes that make it easy to move around. Make sure the clothing you wear gives you a full range of motion in any injured areas. For example, wear shorts if you have knee or hip pain, and wear a loose-fitting shirt if you have shoulder pain.

Can Physical Therapists Perform a Deep Tissue Massage?

Absolutely! Deep tissue massage is part of the treatment program for sprains, strains, and many other conditions. The pressure employed during a deep tissue massage allows tension to release in your muscles and soft tissues.

Can Physical Therapy Reduce Pain and Prevent It from Returning?

For many conditions, physical therapy can reduce pain or eliminate it entirely. Therapeutic exercises, soft tissue mobilization, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and other techniques and modalities can relieve pain and restore joint and muscle function.
