Get PT First for Recreational Injuries!
Summer is finally here and that means more opportunities to get outside and enjoy nature. It’s a popular time for lots of recreational activities including hiking, kayaking, bicycling and swimming. But sometimes increased physical activity can result in injury. Muscular and joint sprains and strains, especially in the knees and ankles account for the largest portion of recreational injuries. Following the old advice of RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) is appropriate for these injuries, but seeking physical therapy treatment can help reduce the pain and symptoms associated with sprains and strains. Ultimately this results in you returning to full function more quickly.
In the state of Pennsylvania, you can directly access physical therapy without a referral from your physician. This means, if you have commercial insurance, you can come directly to a PT first for evaluation of your condition and subsequent treatment can continue for up to 30 days without needing physician referral. At the time of evaluation the physical therapist will determine, based on your symptoms, whether therapy is appropriate and necessary or if you should be referred to a physician for examination and possible imaging.
Whether you are experiencing lingering joint pain from a running injury or have a sprain/strain from a recent fall or injury while hiking on uneven terrain, getting immediate evaluation by a physical therapist could help you get back to your activity sooner.
Have questions or unsure if you should seek treatment? Contact our office and talk with one of our Physical Therapists or schedule an evaluation and get back to enjoying the activities you love!
