Not every injury, twisted ankle or aching back requires surgery. Most cases of acute pain can be treated with physical therapy, a conservative care approach that restores musculoskeletal function through stretches, exercises or minimally invasive treatments.
Occupational therapy improves the patient’s ability to perform regular daily activities, such as getting dressed, picking up a toothbrush, or walking down the hallway. Patients who require occupational therapy may have suffered a brain injury or cognitive degeneration and require practice to get back into these meaningful activities.
Communication can be difficult after a stroke or other brain injury. Speech therapists help patients with speech disorders regain their freedom to communicate as their bodies will allow.
Pet therapy is a complementary therapy that brings animals into the care continuum. Specially trained animals, such as cats or dogs, provide a bond and help release feel-good hormones. Service animals may also be prescribed to help with daily activities. Benefits of pet therapy include reduced boredom, improved mood, and decreased loneliness.
Reiki is an alternative form of medicine that promotes overall well-being through energy healing. Reiki practitioners use palm healing to transfer energy and encourage emotional and physical healing.
Therapeutic touch is a holistic, evidence-based therapy that promotes healing by restoring harmony to a person’s energy fields. It helps patients relax, relieve their pain, and heal faster.
Massage helps provide comfort and relaxation. It uses gentle touch for the hands, arms, feet and legs.
Aromatic materials, such as essential oils, can be used for topical application, massage, inhalation or water immersion to improve psychological and physical well-being.
Music can help provide emotional support to the patient by reducing stress and promoting relaxation. It is especially beneficial when combined with traditional care and can even help increase the patient’s motivation to take an active role in their treatment.
Patients can explore their creative expression through art to help alleviate psychological distress and support their overall well-being.
