Physical Medicine

Touch is one of the most powerful senses we have. Physical medicine utilizes this sense to enhance the body’s natural healing processes. There are multiple techniques including muscle stretching, massage, therapeutic exercise and trigger point therapy that can stimulate the body to heal.

Physical medicine can provide immediate relief for some conditions, however it is also used in combination with other therapies and may require multiple visits to fully address the issue. Part of the goal with using physical medicine as a therapy is to teach you exercises and strategies that you can use at home to enhance your healing.
