The American Pain
Foundation reported in 2013 that up to 80 percent of the people who reside
in North America and Europe will likely suffer from prolonged foot, knee, hip,
back, and neck pain at some point in their life. While many pain sufferers use
medication to cope with skeletal problems, it has been widely demonstrated that
physical therapy and exercise can minimize the need for pain medicines, and in
some cases reverse the effects of painful skeletal and muscular issues.
It is also a good idea that patients practice some physical
therapy at home during the recovery process. It is likely the therapist will
give an in-home regimen to enhance and accelerate recovery. Proper stretching
is introduced to increase mobility to injured body parts. For example, in its
many versions: “The Stick” has been
found to help out many patients suffering from mobility problems.
A cornucopia of rehabilitation and exercise equipment is
available for both physical therapists and those recovering from injuries. Flex
bars are an excellent way to combat tennis elbow and also help recover from
wrist, forearm, and hand injuries. In addition, flex bars can increase the
resistance of specific exercises making it an excellent way to increase
strength. Dumb bells, home gyms and cuff weights are also good ways to increase
physical strength as well.
While proper physical therapy and good equipment are sound
ways to recover from injuries or surgery, it is essential the patient eat a
nutritious diet. Doing so gives the body the nutrients and minerals needed to
repair damaged tissue. A therapist or your primary care physician may also
suggest taking nutritional supplements and vitamins during recovery.
