Find Effective Pain Relief at Senara in Peoria
For many athletes, sports injuries come with the territory. But when it comes to recovering from sports injuries — or preventing them in the future — physical therapy plays an important role in helping strengthen your muscles and promote healing.
Work with our physical therapists at Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa in Peoria for effective pain relief.
The most important thing after any injury is giving your body time to recover and heal. If you don’t, you can cause further damage to that injured area. Physical therapy combines many different key components together to make sure you have a plan in place that helps promote healing — and will get you back on the field. At Senara, we can also pair physical therapy with massage therapy, chiropractic care, and other services your physical therapist thinks you would benefit from.
While healing doesn’t happen overnight, sports rehabilitation with a physical therapist can identify key ways to help promote healing, including exercises and stretches that target the strain or damage.
Find Pain Relief
Did your sports injury require surgery? Has your sports injury healed but you’re still left with pain? Instead of relying on pain medications to ease the pain from your injury, physical therapy can help with pain management and reduce inflammation, stiffness, and soreness. By slowly stretching and moving those injured areas, you’ll start to regain muscle strength and flexibility, reducing pain.
Your physical therapist will work with you to learn about your specific nerve injury and find a physical therapy plan that will help you find pain relief while your body starts the recovery process.
Increase Strength & Flexibility
As an athlete, your body is performing many repetitive motions that can start to take a toll on different joints and muscles. On top of that, if you have a sports injury or those muscles and joints feel tight, strained, or like they have a decreased range of motion, you’re putting yourself at risk for damaging those joints or muscles more.
Through physical therapy, you can take the time to practice moving your body in different ways, increasing your range of mobility. During the sports rehabilitation process, your physical therapist will help you find different body exercises that target those damaged areas to help you regain strength and flexibility.
Prevent Future Injury
Preventing injury through physical therapy is a way to ensure that you don’t have to spend any time on the sidelines. From working to improve your mobility and balance to reducing pain or managing different health conditions, a physical therapist will work with you to create a regime that keeps your body strong and performing at its best!
