As you get older, are you finding that your muscles hurt more? Your bones creak and your back aches. You wake up every morning and it becomes a struggle to get out of bed and the daily doses of aspirin just aren’t cutting it to get rid of the pain anymore.
Heck, you’re probably saying that same old worn out statement, “It’s hell gettin’ old.” And those words can be uttered no matter whether you’re 2 or 102… or any age in between.
Would you take offense if I used the pun… “I feel your pain?”
I hope not because the truth is that I do. In fact, many people do. But the thing that you probably don’t realize is that you can get rid of the body pain you’re feeling with rehabilitation physical therapy.
A great deal of the pain and suffering you’re feeling is coming from some common ailments that are easily fixed. They are handled by addressing the true cause behind what is causing them in the first place. And the healing process itself requires no invasive procedures.
The best way to get rid of the aches you’re experiencing is through rehabilitation physical therapy. It’s physical therapy that is done to help rehab the joints and muscles that are causing the pain. But it focuses on the crux of the problem, not just providing a temporary relief by treating the symptom.
You may be wondering what is meant by that. Here’s the deal.
Do you have a stiff neck or are there other muscles that seem to move, but only with a limited range and with a lot of pain? Well, there are two ways you could handle this issue. Ice and heat the inflexible muscles for temporary relief. Or… you can address the underlying cause of the problem and get more permanent pain relief.
In addressing the underlying problem via rehabilitation physical therapy, you’ll likely work on posture issues. Poor posture leads to stiff and sore muscles. For example, a long term hunched back will cause a great amount of strain on your neck. It can place your head in an unnatural state thereby putting your neck muscles in a position they are not familiar with.
Another cause of these problems could very well be an imbalance of strength in your muscles. Inflexible muscles in your chest (pecs) and weakened muscles in your back cause your shoulders to come together, out of proper alignment, in the front of your body. This too places an unnatural pull on your neck muscles.
The benefit of rehabilitation therapy is that this treatment can naturally help you get your body back into proper alignment by teaching proper posture. It can also fix muscle imbalances by lengthening in the tight muscle and strengthening the weakened muscle which too creates a more natural state for your body and places less pull on your muscle.
And as mentioned previously, correcting these issue give a permanent form of relief.
So to get rid of your body aches and pains on a permanent basis, check into rehabilitation physical therapy to see if it’s right for you.
