PT is a safer option than opioids.
While in some cases, prescription opioids are an appropriate form of treatment, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) urges health care professionals to reduce the use of opioids and are encouraging that instead they choose safer alternatives like physical therapy for most long-term pain. Opioids mask the pain, but do not treat the root cause of the pain. By choosing physical therapy, you are choosing to naturally treat pain through hands-on therapy and prescriptive exercises that will improve your mobility, reduce pain, and increase your strength.
PT can help you avoid surgery.
Treatment by a physical therapy can help avoid surgery in some cases. There are many diagnosis that are overtreated with surgery but physical therapy can be an effective alternative, which poses less of a risk than surgery.
