Why PT at Valley

Mental, physical, and emotional health work together. Often, mental wellness can be
affected by issues like chronic pain, and fear or anxiety surrounding injury. When we
support you in focusing on strengthening muscles, improving your range of motion,
learning nutrition goals, or working on stress management, we can improve your
mood and boost your ability to cope with the pain related to depression and anxiety.

Mental Health Benefits

The adaptability of our brains to relearn information is a powerful tool! When we learn
how to better care for our bodies, it triggers a cascade effect and begins to positively
impact our overall mood.

Some of the benefits of physical therapy include:

Stress reduction - PT helps to reduce stress by giving you the peace of mind that you’re working towards tangible goals like being able to return to work or resume favorite activities pain-free.

Education - an injury can cause fear of the unknown. Working with a physical
therapist can bring clarity to your prognosis.

Progress - it can be disheartening to think you’re not progressing as quickly as you had thought, but a physical therapist can show you the skills you’re accomplishing as you work towards your goal. Through PT you can improve how you both move and feel.

Increased motivation - physically feeling better can improve your mood and desire to do things you need and love to do. Studies have shown that PT paired with mental health counseling can improve outcomes in both areas.

What is dry needling?

Dry needling consists of inserting a small thin needle through the skin and into the underlying muscle to improve pain, flexibility, mobility, and function of the muscles. Dry needling can improve many pain disorders, including but not limited to jaw pain, headaches, neck pain, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and hip or low back pain. The goal with dry needling is to insert the needle into ropy knots within the muscle to elicit a twitch response from the dysfunctional muscle and get it to go from a tense state to a more relaxed state.
