Triumph Over Stiffness and Pain

Proactive Long Beach Physical Therapists Treat Painful Injuries Safely

Relying on over-the-counter pain medicine to treat relentless aches and pains might seem like a rational response at first. You might experience temporary pain relief; however, it’s not a fix-all to your problems. You’re only treating the symptoms rather than the true cause, costing you time and money. You might even develop a dependence on pain meds and need higher doses to feel better, running the risk of experiencing worse side effects. It’s a vicious cycle which will only lead to more unnecessary pain in your life.

As part of your pain management plan at Vortex Wellness, you get access to some of the best Long Beach physical therapy which treats the source of your pain. With our hands-on approach and dedication to helping you return to a level of normalcy and function, you’ll develop the strength and vitality you need to living healthy and pain-free again.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy involves incorporating therapeutic exercise to help restore function, mobility, and reduce pain. Depending on your needs, physical therapists may employ any number of physical therapy techniques. One of the most common is manipulating or mobilizing your joints and massaging them to achieve greater movement and flexibility. Other commonly used physical therapy techniques are:

Electrotherapy

Use of electrical energy to treat neurological problems.

Ice

Used to reduce swelling and inflammation in affected areas.

Heat

Helps treat muscle tightness and pliability.

Traction

Increases the space between the spinal cord’s nerves, relieving pressure.

Personalized Long Beach Physical Therapy at Vortex Wellness

Pain isn’t a one-size-fits-all for people. Everyone’s pain differs in some way or another, and our Long Beach physical therapists treat a variety of conditions you might have.

These include:

· Carpal tunnel syndrome

· Sciatica

· Fibromyalgia

· Sports injuries

· Work-related injuries

· Degenerative joint disease

· Foot and ankle injuries

· Back pain

· Knee and leg pain

· Car accident injuries

Physical therapy also treats conditions you might not expect like:

Vertigo is dizziness accompanied by the strong sensation of everything around you spinning. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or BPPV is the most common, and physical therapy helps restore balance.

If you suffer from tension headaches, migraines, or cluster headaches, physical therapy helps you by improving your posture and loosening neck muscles.

Jaw pain can be caused by bad posture, so physical therapy also corrects this issue along with improving the alignment and mobility of your joints.

A side effect of cancer is the extreme levels of fatigue patients feel. The longer you’re in bed, the more likely you are to lose muscle mass and develop debilitating pain making it harder to walk. Physical therapy helps restore your strength without interfering with your current cancer treatments.
