FAQs on Sprains and Strains:

By Joseph Agnello, PT, Cert. MDT

 

How does physical therapy help with sprains?

Physical therapy is a hands-on, one-on-one, natural alternative to surgery and medications for pain relief. Physical therapists are doctors with advanced training in anatomy and physiology of the human body and can efficiently perform injury analysis, and administer a variety of pain-relieving therapies. By improving the form, function and mobility of your joints, our physical therapists can increase the strength and flexibility of your muscles, and heal your injuries through manual therapy. It can be utilized for acute injuries like strained and stiff muscles, or for chronic issues like that debilitating pain that refuses to go away.

The therapists and their care team at Agnello Spine & Sports Physical Therapy also provides a wide variety of treatment regimens to recover after surgeries and prevent injuries in the future. With physical therapy, we can help you can get out of pain and back to the activities you love.

Physical therapy can help you alleviate from pain in four major ways, namely: 

Exercise: Exercise recommendations and assistance is a common activity our physical therapists perform for you. Whether your muscles shows signs of weakness or is a bit stiff, your therapist at Agnello Spine & Sports Physical Therapy can address the issues unique to you and provide a personalized hands-on one-on-one care. In addition to that, your therapists also create a customized exercise plan that meets your specific needs.

Manual therapy: Manual therapy includes a variety of techniques and regimens to relieve pain. Your therapists at Agnello’s have vast hands-on experience in several techniques including massaging, muscle work, and instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. The therapists also perform several hands-off techniques like paraffin treatments, electrical stimulation, and ultrasound for deep tissue mobilization. By doing so, manual therapy enables your therapists to help your tissues heal, relax, and repair to relieve pain.

Education: When you visit Agnello Spine & Sports Physical Therapy, you will be educated about your condition by our award-winning physical therapists. You will get a better understanding about pain relief, injury prevention, exercise, and lifestyle choices. The care team strongly believes in patient education and the use of practical, effective physical therapy exercise techniques that are easy to maintain both at the facility and at your home. The staffs at the Bethel Park location are happy to answer any questions you have along the way. Joe Agnello and his team strives to empower patients, so they make informed decisions and get the most out of their rehabilitation journey through active participation in the process.

Teamwork: Working with the Agnello Spine & Sports Physical Therapy team gives you a better chance at a speedy and successful recovery from pain, sports injuries and post-operative rehabilitation. By building a positive relationship with your therapist through feedback and commitment, you are taking an active role in your recovery process. Your ongoing relationship with your physical therapist at Agnello’s enables you to have a better understanding of your treatment plan and the expected outcomes. Rest assured, you will be able to get the help you need, when you need it.
