Physical Therapy Services

At AICA Jonesboro, our physical therapists work collaboratively in our inclusive practice with our chiropractors and orthopedists to give you the best care to ensure your total recovery. We offer physical therapy in three areas which include medical, pre-surgical and post-surgical.

After an accident, medical physical therapy is used to strengthen the body and improve range of motion to promote healing. While less than one percent of our patients end up needing surgery, pre-surgery physical therapy will prepare your body for the recovery process after surgery. It also strengthens your muscles and joints, reduces pain and inflammation, and helps you restore your range of motion.

Our post-surgery physical therapists aid in your recovery process by strengthening your muscles and joints as they heal. They work closely with your surgeon to ensure your care plan fits your specific needs.

Types of Physical Therapy

AICA Jonesboro offers multiple types of physical therapy depending on your needs. Here are the three common types of physical therapy that we offer.

Medical PT

This is the most general type of physical therapy that applies to most individuals needing PT services. If you don’t need surgery, didn’t have surgery recently, and are trying to avoid surgery, medical PT is the type of treatment for you.

Pre-Surgical PT

If you’re preparing for surgery or are trying everything in your power to avoid surgery, pre-surgical PT is what you need. This can help in your pre-emptive preparation before surgery to increase joint mobility and muscle strength, and it will encourage cell growth to help speed up your healing after surgery.

Post-Surgical PT

Once you’ve had surgery to repair a broken bone or an injured muscle, ligament, or tendon, you need post-surgical PT to regain strength, range of motion, and health in your previously injured area. Post-surgical physical therapy will improve circulation and help your body heal faster, while also increasing your mobility and minimizing your pain.
