Prevent injuries and Surgery
Physical therapy is known as being a holistic, conservative method of helping patients heal. While Tampa Bay Physical Therapy understands that medication and surgery are necessary at times, if patients are seen when they first begin having symptoms it is possible to counteract or delay having to take these additional measures and avoid injury altogether. Patients at Tampa Bay Physical Therapy can be assured that all conservative measures that are applicable to their injury or illness will be taken before having to consider these additional options. Ask about our pre-habilitation treatment previous to surgery as this can improve the odds of patients healing faster following surgery and allow them to regain their independence sooner.
