How Physical Therapy Can Help You This Holiday Season
Is pain from an existing injury or diagnosis slowing you down this holiday season? Are you not feeling as festive as a result of the pain? Physical therapy is here to help eliminate your pain and help make you pain-free this holiday season.
The first thing physical therapy can help you do is hug! Hugging always makes you feel better- especially when it is from your kids, grandkids, or other family members around the holidays. Studies have shown over 80% of people who have back pain feel better after something as little as hugging a loved one.
The second way physical therapy can help is by giving the best gifts, after all, they don’t call it the giving season for nothing! Instead of delivering the best gifts when you are suffering from back and muscle pain, you are stuck on the couch. No matter the injury, physical therapists can help get you back to feeling good and on your way to gift-giving!
Cooking for family and friends is another warm way to spend the holiday season. When you have neck and back pain, it is difficult to do simple tasks in the kitchen. If you are having pain for more than two weeks, seek a physical therapist so they can get you on a plan and help you get back to cooking that turkey.
Celebrate the holiday season this year by eliminating nagging pain that continues to occur. When going to physical therapy regularly, people see results as fast as 2-3 weeks. That is the perfect time to get you up and celebrating by the time the holidays come around.
Last but definitely not least, helping others this holiday season will go a long way in making you feel better. Pain can often keep us from doing many things for ourselves and also others. When you attend physical therapy and rehab after an injury or surgery, you are allowing yourself to get better and heal so that you can pay it forward.
Our physical therapists and short-term stays can allow you to get on your own customized plan for your injury and help get you moving and feeling better before the holidays begin. Check out our services at Rosewood Care Centers today.
