More Than Muscles: The Power of Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is commonly associated with treating injuries and conditions related to the musculoskeletal system.

However, many people don’t know that it can be beneficial for treating a wide range of conditions, such as vertigo, visceral issues, pelvic floor dysfunction, osteoporosis and many more.

Relieving Vertigo


Vertigo is a condition that causes a spinning sensation and dizziness. It can impact your balance and coordination, making everyday activities challenging to perform. Physical therapy can play a crucial role in managing and relieving the symptoms of vertigo. Therapists use various techniques to retrain the brain and balance system. Through specific exercises and movements, a physical therapist can help regain balance and reduce episodes of dizziness.

Treating Visceral Issues

Treating Visceral Issues

Visceral issues refer to problems within the organs, like the digestive system. These issues can cause chronic pain, making it difficult to perform normal activities. Physical therapy can aid in decreasing pain and improving function in individuals suffering from visceral issues. Therapists can target and release tension within the affected organs through manual techniques. They may also provide tips on posture, breathing techniques and exercises to promote optimal organ function.

Improving Pelvic Health

Improve Pelvic Health

Pelvic floor dysfunction is a condition that affects both women and men. It involves the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues within the pelvis. This leads to issues such as urinary incontinence and pelvic pain. Physical therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction involves strengthening and retraining the pelvic floor muscles. Therapists use a variety of techniques, including pelvic floor exercises, and biofeedback to improve muscle tone, coordination, and control.

Stronger Bones with Physical Therapy

Stronger Bones

Osteoporosis is a condition where bone density starts to decrease and can lead to an increased risk of fractures. Physical therapy plays a crucial role in the management of osteoporosis by focusing on exercises that improve bone strength and balance. These might include resistance exercises like walking or using resistance bands.

Lymph Node Drainage

Other things that can be worked on through physical therapy are lymphedema and suffering from chronic headaches or migraines. Lymphedema is a chronic swelling condition resulting from impaired lymphatic drainage. This can be treated with physical therapy as well as massage therapy. Through physical therapy, you can find relief for headaches and migraines through many different techniques. These might include trigger points, soft tissue mobilization and postural corrections.
