After an acute injury our body responds with pain, muscle guarding, and swelling. These usually naturally resolve as the tissue that was injured heals. Unfortunately sometimes in the case of chronic pain the nervous system is continuing to get the signals of injury and telling the body to continue to create; pain, muscle guarding, and swelling.
One moment in time can change everything. No one plans for an injury that limits your day to day activity. We all want to get back to work and back to life as soon as possible. Physical therapy helps speed recovery time, limit long term affects, and minimize the risk of re-injury.
