Types of Therapy

Dr. David W. Nadler & Associates provides the top physical therapy services in the King of Prussia, West Chester, Exton and Bryn Mawr, PA areas. Physical therapy focuses on utilizing various modalities such as heat, cold, ultrasound, electric stim and rehabilitative exercises to heal and prevent various injuries. Electrical stimulation sends small electrical currents to the area of injury, such as soft tissue damage and or muscle spasms. It helps the body send natural pain relievers called endorphins. These endorphins reduce swelling, break up muscle spasms and increase the blood flow to the region, allowing the muscle to return to its normal state. Electrical stimulation is used for both chronic and acute cases of pain. Rehabilitative exercises focus on injuries and conditions unique to an active patient. Restoring kinetic chain functioning is the fundamental goal. Exercise programs concentrate on stabilizing posture by addressing balance, core, stretching tightened postural muscles and strengthening weakened muscles. The principles of fitness are promoted to not just the athlete, but also the everyday patient. Therapeutic ultrasound is another method. It uses sound waves that vibrate to deliver deep heat to the treated tissues. It may help reduce stiffness, swelling and pain and also increase circulation, decrease scar tissue formation and promote pain-free movement. There are many benefits as it promotes mobility, function and quality of life. This treatment also helps patients avoid surgery and prescription drugs, saving money in the process. It also keeps you involved in your recovery. Physical therapy can treat common injuries such as headaches, sports ailments, whiplash, herniated discs, carpal tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff syndrome, lower back pain, neck pain and TMJ. Misaligned joints, blows to the head, overuse and quick motions can cause these injuries.
