Pain-Free Living: How Physical Therapy in Park Slope Can Change Your Life

Discover how combining in-person training with virtual therapy can help promote a more pain-free and healthy lifestyle for those in the Park Slope area.

Ryan Brennan

A study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that there are more new cases of chronic pain in the United States every year than there are new cases of depression, high blood pressure, and diabetes. To make matters worse, only about 10% of those living with chronic pain undergo successful treatment. 

Let’s not forget – Americans make more than 55 million visits to the doctor every year for injury-related reasons, and another 15 million Americans undergo some form of surgery every year. It’s a scary thought and a sad reality, but a strong majority of us are banged up and/or dealing with some type of pain/injury. 

At PhysioRX, we welcome anyone experiencing pain to a new way of living – a pain-free life you thought only existed in your dreams. By leveraging the power of human connection and digital technology, we’re introducing the Park Slope, NY community to a new way of managing pain and overcoming adversity. 

The Art & Science Behind Physical Therapy & Pain Reduction

Physical therapists are masters of movement. They study, observe, analyze, and evaluate the way your body moves, and use that data to diagnose and even prevent injury or pain. Once the underlying cause or source of pain is identified, they can formulate a customized treatment plan designed around their needs. 

Here are some of the ways physical therapy can change your life: 

  • It not only reduces pain, but can prevent pain from returning
  • A reduced need for pain medication
  • Reduces and, at times, eliminates the need for surgery or invasive treatment
  • Restores movement and function through stretching and strength exercises
  • Improves balance and coordination to prevent falls and other accidents
  • Reduce the impact and symptoms of age-related medical problems
  • Come back from injury feeling better and stronger than you’ve ever felt

There’s an obvious science to physical therapy and pain management, but what many people fail to appreciate is the art and creativity that goes into it. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to physical therapy – each patient is unique, and their treatment should account for that. 

How PhysioRX Is Shaking Up the PT Industry 

Whether you’re recovering from an injury or trying to prevent one, most physical therapists recommend meeting 2-3 times per week. While those 2-3 days are some of the most rewarding days of your week, it’s what happens in those 4-5 other days of the week that really matter – that’s where true progress is made. 

The problem is most clients aren’t doing the things they need to be doing in those 4-5 days to spur any true progress – and it’s at no fault of their own. They either aren’t being taught how to continue recovery at home, or they don’t have the proper support and guidance outside of their typical 1-on-1 sessions. 

At PhysioRX, we not only dreamt of a better way – we created one. 

Our hybrid approach to physical therapy ensures no client is left behind once they leave our stomping grounds. Our clients receive the perfect balance of in-person sessions (with access to our private gyms in the Park Slope area) and virtual sessions (with access to our revolutionary PhysioRX mobile app. 

In-Person Sessions via Private Gym

Human connection should be at the heart of any health and wellness journey – whether you’re treating pain or trying to prevent it. While online-only programs make physical therapy more accessible to those with a busy lifestyle, it takes away from a physical therapist’s ability to properly diagnose and treat pain. 

Here are some of the most prominent benefits of in-person sessions with your physical therapist: 

  • Coaches can make real-time observations and provide more accurate feedback
  • Clients face fewer distractions and are more motivated when accompanied by a coach
  • Access to a broader range of equipment that you might not have in your home
  • Build a close relationship with your coach; that way, they can better meet your needs

At PhysioRX, we wouldn’t dare rob our clients of that human connection – in fact, we make sure to give them our undivided attention for a full 60 minutes for each in-person session. Our clients get access to our two private gyms – one in Brooklyn and one in Manhattan – when booking sessions with a coach.

Virtual Therapy via the PhysioRX App

Building good habits in the gym is one thing, but true recovery happens when you build good habits at home. That’s where most physical therapists fall short – they have no way of monitoring what goes on when their client goes home, and they often have difficulty communicating when questions arise. 

Here are some of the most prominent benefits of virtual therapy with the PhysioRX mobile app: 

  • No need to travel – you can complete your workouts in the comfort of your own home
  • Ability to communicate with your coach, no matter where you or they are
  • Easily monitor your progress and receive real-time feedback from your coach
  • Never feel alone during your journey towards recovery – we’re with you every step of the way!

At PhysioRX, we created an innovative mobile app that connects our clients directly to their coach at all times. Whether you’re at home, on vacation, traveling for work, or running errands – you have a team of physical therapists, fitness coaches, and nutrition experts at your disposal for around-the-clock support.
