Three top reasons why you might need physical therapy in Maine

Newport Physical Therapy

There are plenty of people living in Maine who have never visited a physical therapy clinic. Many of these people, and you might be one of them, might not see a reason to get help from a physical therapist. 

This attitude is common across the country. One study on physical therapy reveals that only about 10% of the people who need physical therapy actually use it. Yet, there are so many types of pain that an experienced physical therapist can help you address. 

Having these three types of pain are reasons to go to physical therapy in Maine:

  1. Lower back pain — It’s likely you’ll find plenty of your friends either have or have had lower back pain. This aligns with a national research study that reveals that about 80% of Americans experience lower back pain in their lifetime. There are many issues that can cause this type of pain. Repetitive movements you do while working or working out can be to blame. Your sitting posture can also be a source of lower back pain. 
  1. Pelvic pain — Women in the Newport area are also likely to experience pelvic pain. They may even have this type of pain for months at a time, which is known as chronic pelvic pain. One medical survey on chronic pelvic pain found that about 1 in every 7 women had this type of pain. Acute and chronic pelvic pain are often caused by factors like: 
  1. Hand pain — We use our hands for so many tasks and activities every day. Hand pain can have a huge impact on a person’s daily productivity. Repetitive movements from typing, which most people do a lot of, can be a source of hand pain. Outdoor activities like cutting wood, playing sports or doing yardwork can also trigger hand pain. Years of doing activities with your hands can also lead to hand osteoarthritis, which affects 44.2% of women and 37.7% of men in the U.S.
