What Is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is treatment to improve and restore your mobility after an injury, surgery or health condition. It can help weak muscles, damaged joints, balance, and your overall fitness. You may receive physical therapy as your only treatment or in combination with other types of treatments.

Benefits of Physical Therapy

Depending on your symptoms, injury or condition, you may experience physical therapy benefits such as:

  • Decreased pain
  • Increased muscle strength and mobility
  • Less inflammation and swelling of joints
  • Reduced use of pain medication
  • Replaces the need for surgery

Board-Certified Physical Therapists

Expect exceptional care from us because all our physical therapists are board certified. That means you’ll work with a highly educated team with advanced skills in physical therapy. The Wayne UNC team can care for you and your whole family, from infants to seniors.

Personalized Evaluation and Plan of Care

You’ll get a full, personal assessment of your symptoms, injury or condition at your first appointment. Your physical therapist will select the best treatment techniques for your condition, needs, and recovery goals. Your therapy sessions will follow your tailored plan of care.

Top-Quality Treatments and Equipment

Take advantage of one-on-one therapy with a physical therapist and advanced technology for your treatments. During your therapy, you’ll do exercises and movements to benefit your specific condition.

Rely on us for the most up-to-date equipment to help stretch, strengthen, and stabilize your body. Modern equipment aids us in pinpointing the sources of your pain or weakness, measuring your muscle strength, and following your progress.

Hands-On Therapy For Your Needs

Get expert hands-on care from our physical therapists for your best rehabilitation results. Manual therapy uses a combination of muscle and joint kneading and manipulation to relieve your pain and aid movement. Your care may involve manual therapy and therapeutic techniques such as:

  • Cold
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Heat
  • Massage
  • Manipulation and mobilization
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Kinesiology taping — uses flexible strips of special tape applied to your body to treat conditions. Choose our certified physical therapist for Kinesiology taping. You’ll get an assessment and taping techniques that may help if you have an overuse or sports-related condition, including muscle spasms, sprains, or strains.
