Physical Therapy Q & A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a healthcare specialty that restores your physical abilities. While chiropractic care focuses on spinal manipulation and alignment, physical therapy emphasizes exercise and muscle function.

Through the use of specially-designed exercises, innovative tools, and exercise equipment, Dr. Abercrombie works with you to maintain, improve, or restore your body’s physical function and strength.

Physical therapy can alleviate numerous conditions, including:

  • Stroke
  • Injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Prior injury that was not properly treated (with symptoms persisting or worsening)

Physical therapy is also an effective treatment option for overuse injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.

What are the benefits of physical therapy?

Physical therapy offers beneficial treatment options for all ages and ability levels, including infants, children, and seniors.

When you add physical therapy to your health management plan, you can often:

  • Reduce your need for surgery
  • Play a more active role in your recovery
  • Eliminate or reduce your use of pain medication

You also don’t have to wait for an injury before incorporating physical therapy into your health regiment. Your physical therapy treatment plan specially designed by Dr. Abercrombie can have a preventive function to increase your movement, improve your balance, and reduce your chances of future falls or injuries.

How does physical therapy work?

Physical therapy provides noninvasive treatments that Dr. Abercrombie tailors to you and your health condition. He offers several types of physical therapies besides chiropractic treatments to restore your physical function. These include:

  • Muscle relaxation and stimulation: gently stretches and contracts your muscles
  • Traction therapy: increasing space between vertebrae
  • Spinal adjustments: gently moves restricted joints
  • Active Release Techniques®: restores function and mobility to soft tissue and muscles
  • Custom exercises: stretches and strengthens your body
  • Lifestyle changes: reduces stress and strain on your body


To provide genuinely comprehensive therapeutic solutions, Dr. Abercrombie also offers nutrition counseling that includes nutritional supplements to help you attain optimal health as quickly as possible.

The time frame for your treatment period with Dr. Abercrombie varies depending on your individual needs and the extent of your injury or physical condition.
