The Benefits of Physical Therapy…Dr. Dennis Lenselink Bloomington, MN

Physical Therapy TreatmentPhysical therapy has been proven very successful  for patients with many conditions  and is repeatedly recommended pre and post surgery. Physical therapy is a type of non-surgical treatment needed when health issues make it difficult to move around and complete daily tasks. It helps you move better and alleviates pain. The main goal of physical therapy before and after surgery is to speed your recovery and improve overall function by increasing range of motion and strengthening muscles, and to avoid the need to get surgery.
