If you’ve been injured at work, you will need to get help to find pain relief. For example, if your injury occurred due to a forklift, you will need assistance from a forklift accident attorney. In the YouTube video, “The Role of Physical Therapy After Injury or Accident,” the David Papa Injury Law Firm thoroughly explains how physical therapists can help you resume maximum function after an accident.

The law firm’s owner, David Papa, interviewed a physical therapist named Carmine.

Physical Therapy versus Chiropractic Services

Carmine noted many people confuse the role of a physical therapist with that of a chiropractor. Carmine admitted the two jobs are similar in that both try to find the source of your discomfort and assist you in using your inner resources to feel better. However, Carmine lets us know physical therapists are focused on guiding your body through therapeutic exercises.

Personal Focus Leads to Recovery

David used the discussion to equate the personal focus of Carmine’s job with the job of an accident attorney like himself. Carmine noted both these professionals examine the client to find the source of the discomfort. Once the client is pain-free, a physical therapist can prescribe exercises to help them reach their highest level of function. The therapist then leads the client to take an increasingly active role in their physical recovery.
