Physical Therapy and Personal Fitness
Physical therapy provides instruction in balance and efficient movement that is necessary for healing and the ability to move with less pain. Whether your goal is to be able to climb stairs with less pain or return to athletic competition, physical therapy is a key pillar in your overall wellness plan. As on the medical side of Osteopathic Wellness of Western New York, our physical therapy partners specialize in treatment that is customized to treat your painful condition with the goal of returning you to the activities you miss.
The approach on the face of it is quite simple-physical therapy relies on exercise and manual therapy to treat. The complexity is in the ability to come up with a treatment that restores the body through movement rather than creating more pain. Our physical therapy partners are skilled in identifying weak linkages that keep you in pain. You will receive an explanation of your condition and a treatment plan. Your treatment will combine the best manual therapy and exercise based approaches that are grounded in the osteopathic philosophy that the body has the natural ability to heal itself when it is properly guided to health with movement.
