Physical Therapy in Torrance CA
Physical therapy in Torrance helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physical therapy or "medically directed rehab" helps restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Our Torrance patients include accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as low-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries, and cerebral palsy.
Treatment often includes exercise; especially for patients who have been immobilized or who lack flexibility, strength, or endurance. Physical therapy helps encourage patients to use their muscles to increase their flexibility and range of motion. More advanced exercises focus on improving strength, balance, coordination, and endurance. The goal is to improve how an individual functions at work and at home.

How Physical Therapy Works
New Health Medical of Torrance was designed to provide an ideal environment for healing your body, through chiropractic, massage or physical therapy. When you arrive at our office, our physicians will take a thorough history, and evaluation of the entire body including posture and biomechanics, range of motion and joint mobility to find out the cause of pain or disability. You will then discuss treatment options and goals, so that we can customize a treatment plan catered to you.
Each session will last roughly one hour. The frequency of visits and the length of treatment is determined by the physician who prescribed the treatment.
The results are typically a result of the patient’s commitment. When the patient follows the plan, does their exercises as often as suggested and using the proper techniques, the treatment is typically very successful.
