How Physical Therapy Can Help You Live a Pain-Free Life

Pain-Free Life

When you’re in pain, your first instinct might be to reach for the Tylenol® or Advil®. But physical therapy offers a drug-free solution that can reduce your pain while restoring your overall health and wellness.

At City Chiropractic and Wellness in Midtown, New York, Dr. Max Heller and our experienced team can create a customized physical therapy program tailored to you and your unique needs.

Physical therapy at work

Physical therapy focuses on precise exercises designed to encourage movement, reduce pain, restore mobility, and prevent future injury. We develop each of our programs based on your ability to move, so we can safely support your recovery while strengthening your body.

At City Chiropractic and Wellness, our physical therapy programs include four types of therapeutic exercises:

This approach not only helps us reduce your pain and inflammation, but it also helps restore your range of motion, improve your endurance, and rebuild your muscle strength. All of these elements can help you live a pain-free life while helping you avoid injury or disability in the future.

Who can benefit from physical therapy?

We recommend physical therapy for any medical condition or injury that’s affecting your ability to move. Common conditions we manage with physical therapy include:

Physical therapy also helps older men and women improve their balance, which can lower their fall risk as they age. And, we can even help athletes train more safely and recover from major athletic events like marathons by creating a physical therapy program to help them maximize their performance.

What to expect from physical therapy

At City Chiropractic and Wellness, we can work with you at all stages of the healing process. During your initial consultation, we perform a physical exam and evaluate your posture, flexibility and movement, and muscle and joint function. We also discuss your specific symptoms, health history, and overall goals.

After we have a clear understanding of your condition, we work closely with you to create a personalized physical therapy program that includes both short- and long-term goals to work toward. In most cases, this program consists of a combination of exercises you can do at home along with components we do together at our clinic.

As we progress through your physical therapy program, we often make modifications to your exercises to help you improve even faster. In some cases, we might recommend a physical therapy program in combination with other forms of chiropractic care to support your physical rehabilitation.
