HOW TO AVOID SURGERY
Physical therapists can help you avoid painful, invasive and expensive surgery.
For instance, research shows that surgery is no more effective than physical therapy, including medical management, for osteoarthritis of the knee. In addition, a combination of manual physical therapy and supervised exercise can delay or prevent the need for surgery.
Water walking, swimming and flexibility exercises can help you avoid surgery. Pursuing an exercise program designed by a physical therapist can be one of the best protections from injury and surgery.
