Physical Therapy in Columbus & Indianapolis

Safe, Effective Treatments for Pain

At American Pain Consortium, we understand your pain. We know how chronic pain can make even the most basic movements more difficult, and how over time, that loss of mobility and flexibility can lead to muscle weakness which ultimately puts even more stress on the body. Physical therapy is one way to restore mobility and reverse the effects of inactivity to help you build strength and agility while diminishing pain symptoms. Many chronic pain patients experience significant gains from ongoing physical therapy by gradually overcoming their physical limitations and improving their range of motion.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a common treatment for workplace injuries, sports injuries, and muscle strains and sprains. It’s especially effective in treating muscular disorders of the lower back. Following an injury, physical therapy can help patients avoid reinjuring the same muscles. There is no “one size fits all” physical therapy plan, which is why our physical therapists take the time to customize your regimen to meet your unique needs.

First, our physical therapists will test your range of motion and assess the degree of discomfort you may experience during these tests. Physical therapy may be uncomfortable to start, but it should not be painful, and your physical therapist will never push you beyond what you can handle. Your program will be personally tailored, but generally involves stretching and strengthening exercises to help restore your ability to move comfortably.

The goal of physical therapy is to reduce pain, enhance mobility, improve strength and flexibility, and promote overall functional ability. It involves customized treatment plans tailored to your individual needs.

How Can Physical Therapy Help Me?

Physical therapy and other rehabilitation services may help you with:

  • Pain reduction: Physical therapists are experts in prescribing exercises to relieve pain and prevent new pain episodes. You may undergo “passive” therapies, where the physical therapist performs an act on you, or “active” therapies, in which you perform an action by yourself. Examples of passive therapies include joint and soft tissue mobilization or electrical stimulation.
  • Improved mobility: No matter your age, if you have trouble standing, walking, or moving, physical therapy will be beneficial for you. Your physical therapist may also prescribe assistive devices to help you move better, such as splints, rollators, crutches, walkers, rollators, and so on. These can help you become stronger and get in better shape sooner so you can move more comfortably.
  • Sports injuries: Whether you have a severely sprained ankle or a torn ligament requiring post-operative physical therapy, you can rely on your physical therapist to design an appropriate exercise program so you can safely return to your athletic endeavors.
  • Post-surgery recovery: Surgery requires rest to heal, but physical therapy exercises can speed up the process.
