October is National Physical Therapy Month

col-JillPhelanThe weather is beginning to cool, football is in full gear and the leaves are starting to change, fall has officially come to the Grand Strand! You’re likely preparing for the holiday fiasco that is the final quarter of the year when in one moment you are helping your kids and grandkids into their ghoulish costumes and then before you know it you’re making a mad dash to the Thanksgiving table, lighting the menorah, wrapping those much anticipated Christmas gifts and cruising to the finish line as you celebrate the New Year.

But before you get enveloped in the holiday season, I wanted to bring your attention to a much less renowned cause, your musculoskeletal and neurological health. October is annual Physical Therapy month in which we recognize and raise awareness how the field can help to engage individuals in a healthy lifestyle. Everyday people are suffering from aches and pains, whether it is a bum knee, creaky shoulder, bulging disc, rheumatoid arthritis, or bouts of dizziness and falling. Each of these cases and more can trigger one to be severely limited in their day-to-day function, causing them to be more reliant on others for what used to be simple tasks, in greater pain or discomfort and less confident in their own ability to move independently. If this sounds familiar to you or someone you know, we as Physical Therapists at Professional Rehabilitation Services are here to help you get back on track.

So how can physical therapy help you or someone you love? PT’s are experts in the realm of mobility and motion. Pain free movement is vital in anyone’s ability to work and provide, get dressed or groomed, do household chores, or participate in recreational activities. Physical therapy can help to avoid surgery and use of long-term prescription drug use. While certain cases and diagnoses cause for greater intervention, there has been good evidence with scientific studies that have shown that conservative approaches such as PT and be as effective as surgery, such as with rotator cuff tears, knee and hip arthritis and low back pain to name a few.  Therapy can also aid in vertigo and balance deficits decreasing risk of injury related to falls. This means less invasive measures, less side effects from medications and less cost to your wallet. PT’s work consistently session-to-session with their patients, formulating a unique plan of care geared to each individual’s needs, goals and aspirations. Therapists utilize the most up-to-date research and proven methods to get people back moving and doing the things they used to do and want to get back to doing.  They are specialty healthcare professionals that are educated, licensed and skilled in various array of treatments to aid in the diagnose and treatment of the human body from muscle strains, chronic pain, degenerative arthritic ailments and even advanced progressive neurological disorders.

We at Professional Rehabilitation Services are here to service the Grand Strand community throughout the year, to encourage improved movement, mobility and quality of life!
