Home on the Range of Motion: It's National Physical Therapy Month
But did you also know that they can provide preventive care?
In observance of National Physical Therapy Month Healthline would like you to know that you can learn a lot from your physical therapist about keeping healthy, fit and pain free.
The American Physical Therapy Association offers preventive exercises for “blackberry thumb,” a painful repetitive strain condition experienced by over-enthusiastic, hand-held users that causes hand swelling, throbbing and tendonitis.
And you can also reduce bicycling-related pain such as anterior front knee pain, neck pain, and back pain through proper bike fit and exercises to help both the occasional weekend cyclist and road warriors.
