Physical Therapy for Prevention, Not Just Rehabilitation
Article Submitted by Andrea Schafer, Bothell Physical Therapy

Bothell Physical Therapy Prevention is the best medicine. In order to know what you need to prevent, it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms that will result in a particular disease or dysfunction. Physical therapists are joint movement experts and can identify joint movement patterns and weaknesses that will likely result in degenerative joint disease, muscle weakness, pain and/or loss of balance. Imagine stopping balance loss before a fall, improving your hip strength to prevent a knee surgery, and using stairs without hesitation. All can be accomplished through preventative physical therapy.

Most of our muscle aches, joint pains, weaknesses, and balance difficulties develop because we don't use the best joint mechanics when we function. We do this because our bodies try to be energy efficient and want to perform our daily tasks using as little energy as possible.  "Bad" posture in sitting is an energy conserving strategy, as is shifting your weight from one leg to another when standing still. Bending over to pick something up using your back instead of your legs is another example. Energy conserving strategies are used at the expense of the joints and puts stress on them causing degeneration. These habits often result in pain, weakness and loss of function. Read more...
