THE TRUTH ABOUT PHYSICAL THERAPY

Every year, millions of people seek the aid of physical therapy in order to treat their numerous ailments: joint pain, recent injuries, chronic discomfort, and so much more.

And rehabilitation is certainly effective for many of these conditions.

While society has been drifting more and more into the idea that physical therapy is a “catch-all” for any sort of aches or pains, it overshadows a truth that many physical therapists do not want you to know:

Prevention is better than rehabilitation

Instead of waiting for a problem to get so bad that the intervention of physical therapy is necessary, what if you could take actionable steps toward preventing the problem in the first place?

The question simply shouldn't be, “How should we address this problem when my health is severely impacted?”

But rather, “What steps can I take to prevent the problem from surfacing in the first place?”

Physical therapy has served millions of people well over the years and will continue to do so.

However, before you resort to the high costs of seeking help from a licensed PT, you owe it to yourself to prevent health issues from arising in the first place.

It’s better to be proactive than reactive, after all.

Do You Need Physical Therapy?

Here is a list of some of the most common reasons people seek physical therapy:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Chronic joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Balance or mobility issues
  • Recent injury
  • Pre- and post-surgical conditioning
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle/foot pain
  • Sprains

If you suffer from any one of these, chances are your doctor will prescribe some form of physical therapy.

However, there is a way to not only treat your ailment, but also attack the source of the problem so that it can be permanently eliminated.

The High Cost of Physical Therapy

If you don’t have health insurance -- or don’t have the right health insurance -- physical therapy can cost you big time.

Reports show that for a 1-hour session, you could spend as much as $540.

Even IF you have insurance, you’ll likely need to pay up to $75 for your co-pay per visit. And on average, you should expect to need around 7 to 10 physical therapy sessions before you see any kind of results.

Then of course, you have to keep going back once your symptoms resurface.

Over 10 years of just 1 physical therapy session per week (with insurance), you’d have to pay $39,000 for treatment.

That’s 2 percent what you pay just once for a solution that will last forever.

And if at any point in the next 10 years you find yourself WITHOUT insurance… it could cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars.

And unfortunately, that number could go even higher in the near future.

With healthcare up in the air in America, millions of people are bracing for a major hike in costs for things like physical therapy.

So whether or not you have insurance, odds are you’ll have to dig deep in your pockets by the time it’s all said and done.

Before you spend your hard-earned money on physical therapy, consider an alternative:

A chair that will not only fix the way you sit, but also alleviate chronic pain in your neck, back, hips and even knees.
