Six Conditions You May Not Realize Physical Therapists Treat
Date:10/2/2013

Oak Brook, Illinois (PRWEB) October 02, 2013

Sports injuries, arthritis, low back pain – all well-known reasons to seek help from a physical therapist. But during National Physical Therapy Month, Athletico wants people to know about some unexpected ways a physical therapist can improve a person’s health, helping with conditions ranging from cancer treatment side effects to incontinence. Here are six health conditions that you may not know a physical therapist treats.

  • Dizziness: A severe type of dizziness called vertigo causes a sudden spinning sensation that can be very debilitating. Most cases of vertigo are caused by an inner ear problem, and often can be eliminated in one as little as one session of physical therapy using a technique called vestibular rehabilitation. Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based therapy that helps regain a sense of balance and is used to relieve dizziness and symptoms of concussions.
  • Concussion: Even what seems like a minor bump to the head, from a fall or even “heading” the ball in soccer, can cause a concussion, which is the result of the brain being jarred from the impact. A concussion can sometimes lead to long-lasting health effects, such as sleep problems, depression or memory loss. Through their comprehensive vestibular rehabilitation process, Athletico’s licensed physical therapists help the brain recover through a management plan that includes evaluation, treatment and continual monitoring of the patient.
  • Jaw pain: Your mother was right about poor posture, but she probably didn’t know that it’s a common cause of jaw pain known as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ, because it can stress the joint. A physical therapist can help you improve your posture, as well as suggest exercises that reduce pain by improving the alignment of the joint and increasing mobility.
  • Incontinence:
