Physical Therapy Q&A

Who is a candidate for physical therapy?

North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine refers you to Rise Physical Therapy if you have an underlying musculoskeletal condition that doesn’t require surgery. Common problems that benefit from physical therapy include:

  • Arthritis
  • Lower back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Sciatica
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Sports injuries
  • Auto accident injuries
  • Workplace injuries

Physical therapy speeds up healing after surgery. For example, after a hip replacement, stretches and strengthening exercises reduce pain, relieve stiffness, and help you return to your routine.

What does physical therapy involve?

The Rise Physical Therapy team offers various treatments to promote musculoskeletal healing. They could suggest:

Range-of-motion (ROM) or flexibility exercises

These exercises help you heal after a joint injury. Their goal is to maintain your flexibility and increase movement while relieving pain, swelling, and stiffness.


Stretches are used to lengthen your muscles. They promote flexibility and increase blood flow. Guided stretching keeps your muscles strong and healthy and reduces your risk of injury.

Dry needling

Dry needling is a minimally invasive therapy that uses small, sharp needles to treat trigger points (tight muscle knots). During treatment, your physical therapist inserts one or more needles into an affected trigger point. The needles increase blood flow, relieving pain and promoting healing.

Cupping therapy

Cupping therapy is similar to dry needling in that it increases circulation, relieves pain, and promotes healing. It uses glass cups instead of small needles to facilitate this process. Your therapist places the cups at strategic points on your skin. They form a vacuum, pulling your skin upward and spurring the healing process.

Building core strength

If your abdominal and lower back muscles are weak, you’ll likely experience musculoskeletal pain and spinal instability. Strong core muscles keep your spine stable and in proper alignment.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy uses varying pressures, kneading of the skin and muscles, and other hands-on measures to relieve pain, increase circulation, and reduce stiffness. Rise Physical Therapy often incorporates massage into its treatment plans.

How long will I need physical therapy?

The time you’ll need to spend in physical therapy will depend on your symptoms and the problem being treated. Rise Physical Therapy typically prescribes four to six weeks of bi-weekly treatments and then reevaluates your plan, making adjustments as needed.
