Why Physical Therapy is Important for Recovery

Here at South Coast Post Acute Care, one of our main focuses is the importance of physical therapy through skilled nursing. We want you to obtain your desired results when it comes to maintaining independence after recovery so you can live your best life. Reducing physical struggles is a key part to living a happier lifestyle while your body is aging, having the right post acute care is crucial to your therapy experience. Here are some of the benefits of physical therapy exercises:

Maintaining Strength
When we age, we lose a lot of our strength, balance, and flexibility. This makes us less motivated to be active and therefore leading to even more loss of strength. Physical therapy helps maintain these functions so you can be more active and avoid harmful falls, leading you to a more stable and youthful life.

Minimizing the Effects of Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a progressive bone disease that can decrease bone mass and density, which can be the cause of many physical challenges. Without physical therapy, there is more risk for an increase in broken bones and fractures. Along with an appropriate diet, physical therapy can reduce the effects of osteoporosis and can prevent dangerous consequences.

Alleviate Arthritis Pains
Arthritis is a common yet inconvenient problem amongst seniors. Therapy can preserve joint strength and alleviate pain through various exercises. We provide you therapeutic exercises to relieve discomfort through specific techniques, as well as activity modifications to your everyday routine to manage the pain effectively.

Our South Coast skilled nursing and licensed therapy specialists want to ensure you live your life to the fullest during your senior years. Getting your desired outcomes from post hospital nursing is essential to us here in our community. Having the ability to maintain independence leaves you more time to do the things you love and less time focusing on physical pains.
