Physical Therapy Q & A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a practice useful in evaluating and treating conditions that affect the functionality in your tissues and muscles. Rebecca Mendoza, PT, is highly experienced in addressing injuries or damage from a disease that causes you pain or affects your mobility.

Through physical therapy, Rebecca can evaluate and address:

  • Strength
  • Balance
  • Posture
  • Flexibility
  • Range of motion
  • Functional mobility

Rebecca creates a custom treatment plan to reduce pain and improve your quality of life after an injury or illness. Physical therapy is also very common following surgery and typically your first step into the start of your healing and recovery.

Physical therapy may also be used in combination with massage therapy, to reduce stress and tension that causes chronic muscle pain.

What can I expect during physical therapy?

Rebecca initially reviews your symptoms and medical history to gain a clear understanding of which physical therapy techniques to use in your treatment.

During your sessions, Rebecca uses exercises and stretching techniques to improve your flexibility and alleviate treatments. She also may teach you at-home exercises to continue your therapy outside of your appointments.

Rebecca works closely with you throughout your treatment, assessing the success of therapy on your pain and functionality. Her goal in treatment is not only to relieve immediate pain, but also to enhance your overall health and wellness in the long-term.

What kind of physical therapy equipment is available?

Chicago Chiropractic Center offers some of the latest advancement in physical therapy technology. Part of your treatment may involve:

  • Traction
  • Ultrasound
  • Electric stimulation
  • Infrared light therapy
  • Accelerated Performance Recovery Therapy

Rebecca also offers iontophoresis, an innovative treatment that delivers medication directly to the injury site in the deep layers of your tissue. This treatment uses electricity to push the medications, such as anti-inflammatories or magnesium sulfate, into the tissue to alleviate pain and reduce muscle spasms.

Whether you’re referred to physical therapy by your doctor or wish to improve your strength and flexibility, Rebecca provides you with the comprehensive care you need to restore your mobility and enhance your quality of life.
