Why do you need an annual physical therapy check-up?
It is common for many people to go to their doctor for a physical once a year. This yearly physical done by your primary care physician is not specifically catered to your musculoskeletal system. According to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), every individual should pay an annual visit to a physical therapist along with an annual visit to a physician for a complete physical check-up.
An annual PT check-up truly is preventative maintenance for your musculoskeletal system. That's why you need an annual physical therapy check-up! During your appointment, one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy will not only check your joint mobility, spine mobility, flexibility and strength, but also perform an overall movement assessment. We will provide a home exercise program, suggest activity modifications and make recommendations specifically for you.
Recent research has pointed to the fact that physical therapy provides a holistic approach to overall health and wellness. The APTA recently cited research indicating that decreasing physical activity has consequences of developing obesity, chronic diseases and other illnesses.
