While surgery and prescriptions are often the main course of treatment for certain diagnoses, there is now increasing evidence supporting more conservative treatments such as physical therapy care which can be equally effective and a less expensive for many conditions.
For example, lower back pain is often over-treated despite the abundant evidence showing that physical therapy in Montclair, NJ is a cost-effective alternative treatment. As a matter of fact, physical therapy care does not usually need advanced imaging scans like MRIs which is often considered as a culprit for an increase in the cost of care as well as the likelihood for surgery and injections.
The benefits of physical therapy care are multiple. This treatment helps alleviate pain and promotes body strength, function, and mobility while preventing future physical injury. These are the main objectives of chiropractic care. In fact, the treatment that you will undergo in physical therapy clinics can be as effective as surgery for spinal stenosis, degenerative disk disease, rotator cuff issues, meniscal tears and knee osteoarthritis, among other conditions.
