The physical therapist is a key member of the healthcare team, specially trained to improve movement and function, relieve pain and expand a patient's movement potential. Through evaluation and individualized treatment programs, physical therapists can treat existing problems and provide preventive healthcare for people with a variety of needs.
Commonly treated diagnoses include:
- anterior cruciate ligament repair
- back and neck injuries
- conditions related to degenerative diseases
- musculoskeletal injuries
- postoperative rehabilitation
- repetitive or work-related injuries
- rotator cuff injuries
- total joint replacements
- vestibular rehabilitation
Physical therapists also work with children, individuals with cardiac disease, neurological impairment and wounds.
To receive physical therapy, you must have a written referral from your physician. Once a referral is received, a licensed physical therapist will evaluate your needs and set up an individual treatment program to best suit you. Therapy may include exercise to increase strength, endurance, coordination or range of motion. Modalities such as heat, ice, ultrasound or electrical stimulation are used to help relieve pain, muscle spasm or swelling and to promote healing.
Baptist Health Lexington is pleased to offer therapists who are certified in a variety of manual therapy techniques which reduce pain, promote healing and enhance functional mobility.
