Eight Common Issue You Did Not Know Your Physical Therapist Could Treat!

Physical therapy is commonly associated with recovering from physical injuries or surgeries, such as those caused by car accidents, sports injuries, or joint replacements. Additionally, many people associate physical therapy with helping individuals regain mobility, strength, and range of motion after an injury or surgery. However, it is important to note that physical therapy has the potential to offer benefits that extend beyond just injury rehabilitation. Physical therapy can effectively treat a wide range of conditions and ailments that may surprise many people.

Dizziness and Vertigo

Physical therapy can treat inner ear problems that can cause dizziness and vertigo. A physical therapist can use specific head and body movements to help patients regain their balance and reduce dizziness symptoms.

Tension Headaches/Migraines

Physical therapy can treat tension headaches and migraines by addressing muscular imbalances, postural issues, and tension in the neck and shoulder muscles.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Pelvic floor dysfunction is another condition that can be treated with physical therapy. This includes incontinence, pain, and pelvic organ prolapse, which can be addressed through pelvic floor muscle exercises, relaxation techniques, and behavioral modifications.

TMJ Disorder

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is a condition that can cause pain, clicking, and popping in the jaw, and can be improved through manual therapy techniques, exercises, and education.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is another condition that can be treated with physical therapy. CFS is characterized by fatigue, exercise intolerance, and deconditioning. A physical therapist can develop a graded exercise program that gradually increases activity levels, improves endurance, and reduces fatigue.


Lymphedema is when lymphatic fluid accumulates in the tissues, often affecting the arms and legs. A physical therapist can use manual lymphatic drainage, compression garments, and exercise to reduce swelling and improve lymphatic function.

POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome)

Physical therapy can help manage symptoms of Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) through a combination of exercise, lifestyle modifications, and education. Physical therapists can develop individualized exercise programs to improve cardiovascular fitness and increase muscle strength. Additionally, they can supply guidance on lifestyle modifications, energy conservation techniques, and pacing activities to help patients manage their symptoms.


Fibromyalgia symptoms include pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and cognitive difficulties. Therapeutic exercises include aerobic conditioning, strength training, stretching, and balance training; manual therapy techniques like myofascial release and trigger point therapy; modalities like ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and heat/cold therapy; education and lifestyle modifications are among the techniques used in physical therapy treatment.

Physical therapy is a versatile form of rehabilitation that can treat various conditions beyond typical musculoskeletal injuries, surgeries, and chronic pain conditions.
