Physical therapy is a method of medical treatment based on a complete understanding of physiology, medical conditions, anatomy, surgeries, and movement patterns. It focuses on strength and function, restoring movement, relieving pain, and is achieved through the use of therapeutic modalities (see below), exercises, activities, and hands-on techniques. Physical therapy also educates people on ergonomics, body mechanics, fitness, and wellness issues. Treatments may include the following:
- Home safety evaluation
- Gait training exercise
- Body mechanics and positioning
- Anodyne® Therapy (Infrared light energy)
- Electrical stimulation
Anodyne is a physical therapy modality that is non-invasive, drug-free, patented, FDA-cleared and Medicare-reimbursed. The word “anodyne” means pain relief. Arrays of light emitting diodes that produce monochromatic infrared energy are placed in direct contact with the skin. It has been clinically proven to increase local microcirculation and reduce pain and positive results can be observed in as little as a single 30-minute treatment in some patients. It can be used on patients of all activity and ability levels, and can even be safely applied over metal implants and pacemakers. Over 6,000 Health Care Professionals including the US military use Anodyne Therapy. Anodyne Therapy provides us with a unique tool to treat our patients suffering from pain due to their ability to enhance the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
