This Physical Therapy Month we want patients to try physical therapy first! Physical therapy is a safe non-invasive form of treatment for patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain or injuries.
PHYSICAL THERAPY is a safe and SMART alternative to opioids.
Great candidates to be referred to physical therapy instead of prescribing pain pills include:
- A patient that has had pain for more than 90 days
- A patient that complains of pain disturbing their sleep or daily activities
- A patient that has a history of substance abuse or has been on pain medication for an extended period of time
- A patient that expresses an interest in avoiding opioids
Try physical therapy and see the difference!
