Physical Therapy is a health care profession that provides service to evaluate, maintain, and restore optimal physical health function. All physical therapy treatment plans at Life Total Wellness are customized to best meet the health needs of our patients.
Our practitioners work closely with you and our team of health care professionals to provide you with the best, comprehensive care to meet your personal health needs. Physical Therapy can involve both active and passive forms of care to help clients in the rehabilitation process.
Active Physical Therapy involves any kind of treatment where you are physically involved. This might mean that you are moving a joint or a muscle, either with the assistance of your physical therapist or other care provider, or without. Examples of active treatment include manual therapy, exercise programs, stretching, strengthening, walking on the treadmill, and cycling a stationary bike.
Passive Physical Therapy involves the use of non-invasive, specialized equipment to provide physical stimulation to assist in the healing process. Passive treatment focuses more on pain relief. Passive therapies do not involve the movement of your muscles or joints actively, but does involve moving the muscles and joints passively by the practitioner. Examples of passive treatment include heat and cold, ultrasound, and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) machines, cold laser, Interferential current & myofascial release.
