The Importance of Physical and Occupational Therapy

Not sure if you need physical therapy or occupational therapy at Total Health Center?

Occupational therapists and physical therapists work to improve people's lives. Therapists like Mohinder Chawdhry, Kristy Penick, and Glennda Chawdhry can help at their Battle Creek, MI, office.

What is physical therapy and why is physical and occupational therapy important?

You need physical therapy if you sustain an injury or suffer from a condition affecting your ability to walk, bend, or reach for objects. During physical therapy, your physical therapist will help you perform these exercises to help improve joint mobility, strength, and balance. This helps improve coordination and strengthens your muscles.

When is physical therapy recommended?

Physical therapy is recommended when experiences conditions such as:

  • Recovering from surgery
  • Sports injuries
  • Back or neck pain
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Stroke
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Sciatica
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spondylosis
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Vertigo
  • Osteoporosis
  • Overuse injuries
  • Hip, knee, foot, or ankle pain
  • Headaches
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Lymphedema
  • Headaches
  • Osteo or rheumatoid arthritis

Your Battle Creek physical therapist will:

  1. Assess your condition
  2. Ask you questions about your symptoms to learn about your work and daily activities
  3. Create a unique therapy plan

Each plan varies, depending on your injury or condition, from stretches and weightlifting to using special machines.

What about occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy is a technique that makes performing your job and daily tasks easier. Physical therapists help people who have suffered from strokes, people who need to perform simple things like brushing their teeth again or using a fork.

Occupational therapy helps rehabilitate people who have undergone major surgery to improve their quality of life. Your occupational therapist spends time learning about your limitations, your daily needs, and goals and helps you get there.
