"In the study, researchers found that people who were treated by a physical therapist soon after their diagnosis for the 4 most common musculoskeletal conditions—back pain, knee pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain—were less likely to be prescribed opioids later in their treatment episode."

The good news is that conditions such as incontinence, pelvic pain, lymphedema, those that occur during pregnancy and following birth, and others, can all be treated by a physical therapist, often with solutions that do not involve surgery or long-term use of prescription medications.

“I am so grateful to the staff at Abilene Physical Therapy. I was having horrible pain in my hip and leg and medicine was not working so I asked my doctor about physical therapy and he said yes try that. The staff scheduled me right away and I started treatments. I had a very difficult case as I had seen a number of doctors and had no diagnosis and each doctor had a different opinion of what was wrong. The therapists and staff worked so hard to address issues and improve my health. In the middle of my year long battle, my son sprained an ankle in basketball and could hardly walk due to swelling and bruising. They worked him into theirs and my schedule so easily! He developed plantar fasciitis after the sprain and they just continued to do amazing treatments to get him back into sports. If you are looking to heal a sprain, control pain management without a lot of medications, or just have questions about ailments, Abilene Physical Therapy is a great place to start!” AH
