Physical Therapy Q & A


What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a non-invasive, natural treatment that can preserve, enhance, or restore movement and physical function. It utilizes:

  • Therapeutic exercises
  • Flexibility training
  • Assistive devices
  • Massage
  • Electrotherapy
  • Patient education

You can benefit from physical therapy at New York Medical Vascular Care if you have a disease, disability, or injury. It’s a holistic pain management strategy that offers relief from leg pain, leg swelling, joint problems, pain or stiffness after surgery, and much more.


Is physical therapy right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for physical therapy, your New York Medical Vascular Care provider reviews your medical history, asks about symptoms you may have, and completes a physical exam. They might recommend you undergo blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to diagnose a chronic disease or injury.

What should I expect during physical therapy sessions?

The physical therapy team at New York Medical Vascular Care personalizes each treatment for your condition and physical ability. They might recommend:

Strength Exercises

Your provider helps you complete injury or disease-specific exercises to boost strength in muscles, joints, and other musculoskeletal tissues. They might suggest you use your body weight as resistance, try weights, or use resistance bands.

Assistive Devices

Using assistive devices can better support muscles and joints while an injury heals. Your physical therapist might recommend you wear a brace, use a cane, or try crutches until you regain strength and flexibility.

Do you experience leg fatigue, cramping, and pain? You might have Peripheral Vascular Disease.
