Try Physical Therapy FIRST

If you are recovering from surgery, injury, or accident - OR you are in pain and discomfort and need to feel better and heal quickly - TRY PHYSICAL THERAPY FIRST.

Often times, a doctorate trained physical therapist can better diagnose the physical issues you're struggling with and help improve your health by fixing the SOURCE of the problem - instead of just masking the symptoms with medications.
