The Healing Benefits of Physical Therapy
Exercise is well-known for its health benefits, specifically its ability to reduce chronic diseases and prevent premature death. Physical therapy uses exercises and movement to guide the body toward healing, as well as to prevent future injuries. Usually, the goal is to restore function, improve mobility, increase flexibility, and improve strength.
Physical therapy uses manual hands-on techniques and prescribed exercises to help the body heal itself. The body is quite capable of healing, but sometimes it needs a little help to get there.
The benefits of physical therapy include:
- Reduced pain.
- Improved mobility and flexibility.
- Avoiding more invasive treatments, such as surgery.
- Improved strength.
- Improved balance.
- Enhanced healing.
The Healing Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture originated in China thousands of years ago. The fact that it’s still around today speaks volumes. And in the modern-day, acupuncture isn’t restricted to the eastern world.
Acupuncture has quickly become mainstream in the western world, with countless individuals reporting its advantageous effects. It involves the insertion of tiny needles at set acupuncture points across the body. These needles stimulate endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain relievers. Additionally, it stimulates neurotransmitters to be released to aid the body in its natural healing process.
The biggest benefit of acupuncture is its ability to reduce pain. In turn, this can contribute to improved physical therapy treatment since the individual may be able to perform their prescribed exercises – without pain holding them back.
