What Is Elbow Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy after elbow surgery is common. You may also receive physical therapy after suffering trauma or pain to a part of your body. If you are concerned about the pain in your elbow, you may need physical therapy services. Physical therapy for elbow pain includes different exercises that help build up your elbow’s mobility and strength. The goal of elbow physical therapy is to reduce pain while increasing the blood flow to encourage the healing process.
Do You Need Physical Therapy for Your Elbow?
The most common elbow injury is tennis elbow, and some people also experience arthritis in the elbow. Whatever your condition, our physical therapy services can help reduce swelling, increase your range of motion and help you manage the pain.
To start your elbow recovery, you will need to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors or your doctor for a medical evaluation. Based on that evaluation, the doctor will determine if elbow physical therapy is necessary. They also decide which treatment or treatments would most benefit you.
You can either be referred to our team by your primary care physician, or schedule an evaluation with one of our doctors directly. If a doctor decides that physical therapy is right for you, they will prescribe the treatment and you can begin your physical therapy program.
