Physical Therapy

at Origin Rehabilitation Physical Therapy Clinic in Mint Hill, NC

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy at Origin Rehabilitation can be broken down into three phases: Pain Relief, Building Stability (strength), and Teaching Mobility (functional movement). Some people avoid getting help with a problem because they believe physical therapy will hurt. In our experience, the opposite is most often true. Physical therapy is focused on achieving pain relief and restoring your ability to do the things you love. Our Mint Hill, NC physical therapists will make sure that you understand the rare pain or discomfort felt during your treatment.

Your physical therapist will design your treatment plan specifically to your needs to ensure you have the strength, flexibility, balance, and overall mobility to do the active lifestyle you expect. They will assist you with many of these movements and will provide a few simple movements that can be done at home to support your recovery.

The goal of physical therapy is your return to an active lifestyle even if past treatments have failed. The best results are achieved when the process is cooperative, and communication is detailed. Our physical therapists are dedicated to getting you the results you expect.

How Will Physical Therapy Help Me?

Broadly, the goal of physical therapy is to relieve pain (if present) and return patients to their active lifestyle while reducing the risk for re-injury. Whether you’re recovering from surgery, you’ve suffered a recent injury, or you’re dealing with lingering pain that won’t go away no matter what you try, physical therapy aims to work with your body to restore your ability and give you the tools to stay strong.

A physical therapist is a trained movement specialist. Having studied not only simple (like a robot) but complex and dynamic movements (like real humans) with walking, running, jumping, bending, stretching, and almost any other activity you can imagine. Our physical therapist will pinpoint the problem at its source (Origin) and create a customized treatment plan to improve those specific concerns.  Your treatment plan will also address other areas that may influence “problem spots.” Through in-office sessions and at-home exercises, patients strengthen their muscles and joints, improve balance, build endurance, and experience pain relief, all without the unwanted harmful risks of drugs or surgery.

What Can I Expect from Physical Therapy?

Each of our patients has their own unique health needs. Our practice is designed to meet your individual needs and provide the treatments that work best for you. You won’t find a one-size-fits-all program or experience a cookie cutter treatment.

In the beginning, we’ll talk to understand your goals and expectations for therapy as well as other health conditions that may be holding you back. We’ll then begin to isolate the problem and pinpoint its source or origin through observation and measurement of different movements and a hands-on assessment. Once we have a clear picture of the problem, you and your physical therapist will create, modify, and refine your treatment plan as you progress toward your goals.

Returning to the active lifestyle you’ve come to expect is possible, even if you struggle with chronic pain. Please contact our physical therapy clinic in Mint Hill, NC today to schedule your appointment or consultation.
