Physical therapy is prescribed to help patients like you increase motion, restore function, and return to daily activities without pain. Physical therapy or “medically directed rehab” restore your body to it’s proper balance and function by stretching muscles that are chronically tight and strengthening muscles that have weakened over time. Our Edgewater and New Smyrna Beach, FL patients include many individuals that have been involved in auto accidents and are suffering from whiplash conditions.
Typical treatment will include a series of stretches, cervical traction, and mobilizations. Exercises prescribed by the provider are designed to increase your endurance and strengthen muscles that may have been weakened due to an injury such as an auto accident. More advanced exercises focus on improving strength, balance, and coordination. Our goal is to help you reach your health goals and to allow you to function at home and work without pain.
