The art of physical therapy has vast benefits and very low risks. Physical therapy is used to decrease and eliminate pain from conditions such as stiff muscles to back pains to sport injuries. Manuel treatments are used to help eliminate pain. "Massage, spine adjustments, and acupuncture are branches of the all-inclusive physical therapy." These forms are starting to decrease in the amount of time a physical therapist spends on preforming these actions. Spas and relaxation is starting to take its place.

Last paragraph: The improvement scores were based on the WOMAC, which is a measurement used on both knee and hips. Overall, at the end of the 2 -year trial, the patient that received arthoscopic surgery showed the same amount of improvements as the patients who took part in the therapy. However at the end of 3 months, there seemed to be a small improvement to the surgery group but as the time went on, the differences soon disappeared. The differences are mostly results of the placebo effects that are dealt with surgery. Secondary Measures, which touch upon physical function, pain, and quality of life also did not differ much from the control group. This proves that there is no significant advantages to arthroscopic surgery compare to therapy.

Infections after Surgery:
Matthew Loughner's comment, March 18, 2013 10:31 PM
When the skin is broke open there is always a chance for infection. A surgical incision is a prime time for infection to strike the body even when the surroundings are very clean. When an infection strikes a patient, "the patient creates the need for another surgery that causes them to have a greater risk of a infected incision or a blood infection." Although antibiotics are commonly used before and after surgery, there is still a chance for infection. Medical staffs are real caution about infections when they are dealing with a patient.

Sciatica is known for resolving quickly, but for some patients, this is not always the case. Before this study, there was little evidence that expressed how likely that the resolution of the problem would occur. In the study the group had the option for surgery or physical therapy. The group that chose surgery showed improvements in symptoms for just a short time. By six months to two years the differences between the patients who received surgery and the ones who received therapy the differences of them went away.

Other studies show that expensive surgery methods are not the best methods for lower back pain. Less expensive methods such as Physical therapy is a better approach to take. The treatments of this therapy would include hand-on therapy that would mobilize the spine and exercises that would be performed to eliminate pain and help keep the injury happening again. Many doctors suggest physical therapy as a first line option for lower back pain. More information about lower back issues and other pains can be distributed to you from local physical therapists.
