Physical Therapy Hialeah – FAQs
1. What types of injuries do your Physical Therapy Programs treat?
Our physical therapy programs treat both chronic and acute conditions, including the following:
- Tennis elbow
We also treat other conditions not listed above. If you are not sure if physical therapy in Hialeah is an appropriate form of treatment for your specific injury, please Schedule an Appointment so that our trained medical staff can evaluate your condition and prescribe an appropriate course of treatment.
- WHY IS PHYSICAL THERAPY SO IMPORTANT?
There are two main reasons why physical therapy is important. First and foremost, it helps to reduce or eliminate pain, as well as restore muscle and joint function. Secondly, it has a preventative function. PT stops pain from reoccurring, improves basic body functions (such as balance, vascular condition, neurological functions), and helps in recovering from stroke or sports injury.
- CAN I DO PHYSICAL THERAPY IF I SUFFER FROM VERTIGO?
During your initial evaluation, our physical therapist in Hialeah will screen you for fall risk. If the risk is high, the therapist will set up a plan containing only safe exercises for you. They will also prepare a program to improve coordination and recommend special devices to assist you. Not only you can safely have physical therapy, partaking in it will also help to reduce, or even eliminate symptoms of vertigo.
- HOW LONG DOES PHYSICAL THERAPY TAKE?
The length of your physical therapy program will depend on the type of injury and your condition. Some medical problems can be treated within just a few sessions, whereas others require more time. In general, the length of your therapy will be determined by the time your body needs to reach your physical therapy goals.
- HOW MANY DAYS A WEEK DO YOU GO TO PHYSICAL THERAPY?
Typically, a physician recommends physical therapy 2 to 3 times per week. The frequency of appointments varies, though, due to differences in individual diagnoses and the extent of the injury or condition. The course of treatment is decided by you and our trained medical staff during your initial evaluation at our Medical Center in Hialeah.
- HOW LONG IS ONE SESSION OF PHYSICAL THERAPY?
One session usually lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your condition and the program prescribed. As you progress, your sessions could change in length and frequency.
- WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO PHYSICAL THERAPY?
In order for physical therapy to work, you need to feel comfortable and at ease.
