The Importance of Physical Therapy

Physical therapy plays an important part in the medical treatment provided to clients of Chicago personal injury law firms such as Morici, Longo & Associates. Physical therapists who are experts in motion and treat patients with health related conditions to reduce pain and to improve or restore mobility are a great asset to those injured in Chicago auto accidents. Physical therapists are highly trained health care professionals and often create personal treatment plans to meet the patient’s health care and post-operative rehabilitation needs. Many of those who suffer work injuries or who are represented by Chicago workers' compensation lawyers seek the help and assistance of trained and licensed physical therapists.

Rehabilitation services keep patients moving forward so they can return to day-to-day work and recreational activities and remain at their optimal health without further risk of injury. Morici, Longo & Associates carefully monitors the physical therapy provided to our clients and coordinate that physical therapy treatment with the medical treatment provided by the orthopaedic surgeons providing care. James J. Morici, Jr., the managing partner and a prominent Chicago construction site injury attorney, states that “physical therapy is usually the first step toward rehabilitation of an injured worker."

Nearly all of our clients, whether injured in auto accidents, workers compensation injuries, or hurt on construction sites, usually begin their recovery with a regimen of medication and physical therapy. In many cases, physical therapy permits our clients to control their pain, regain motion, and resume their normal activities. When conservative treatment like physical therapy does not provide complete recovery, Chicago orthopaedic surgeons often turn to more invasive treatments such as epidural steroid injection or surgery to help to bring relief.
