Physical therapy (PT) is a type of treatment. It can help manage long-lasting muscle and joint pain. It can also aid in recovery after surgeries such as a knee and hip replacement. The type of PT depends on your condition, pain level, and quality of life. Studies recommend people complete at least 1 to 2 weeks of PT. When done, you should continue your exercises at home.

PT includes a mix of techniques. Some examples are:

  • stretching
  • balance
  • strengthening

Talk with your physical therapist. Tell them how well the treatment is working for you.

Physical therapy helps you obtain better health and less pain!
