Sometimes pain treatment can be accomplished through physical therapy. Physical therapy (PT) involves the treatment, healing, and prevention of injuries or disabilities. PT helps to relieve pain, promote healing, and restore function and movement.
PT is practiced by a professionally trained physical therapist under the referral of a doctor. A physical therapist is a specialist skilled and educated specifically in proper rehabilitation.
If you have a chronic illness like arthritis or lung disease that makes it
painful or difficult to walk, you might qualify for a handicapped parking
permit. Ask your doctor about eligibility. People with limited mobility can
save time, energy, and frustration when they park in handicapped parking spots
near the entrances to businesses.
Each state has its own forms and criteria for handicapped parking permits.
Typically, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) runs the program.
An important aspect to keep in mind about physical therapy is that each individual is different and may respond differently to therapy. People have different types of bodies, different patterns of movement, different alignments, and different habits. Physical therapists and their trained staff can monitor each individual and attempt to correct improper habits, alignments, and movement patterns.
