The Mettler Release
Choose Physical Therapy to Address Pain

We always take time each October to celebrate National Physical Therapy month. It is important for everyone to know Mettler Center offers outpatient physical therapy. This service is at the core of all we do, and is how Mettler Center got it its start. 

Over the last several years, healthcare has become more complex and we thank all our patients for entrusting us with your care. Our results speak for themselves since word of mouth is our primary referral source. Satisfied patients sharing their positive experience with Mettler Center Physical Therapy is the best thank you we can receive!

5 Reasons to Choose Physical Therapy
5 Reasons to Choose Physical Therapy
Physical Therapy is one of the top recommended options for pain management. In fact, the Office of the U.S. Surgeon General is urging all physicians to first consider treatment options such as physical therapy before prescribing pain medications which can lead to a range of additional health problems.

Here are five reasons why physical therapy is a great choice.
  1. Target the source of the pain - A good physical therapist does not simply treat the symptoms they problem-solve to figure out where is the pain originating. This comprehensive approach will reduce your total healthcare costs over time.

    My physical therapist diagnosed the root cause of my knee pain and with treatment was able to remedy underlying issues like hip position affecting the knee. This is something the doctor never did. -Mary Long
  2. Access to everyone - In the state of Illinois, an individual simply needs to ask for a referral for physical therapy from their doctor. It is your right as a patient to choose physical therapy and where you are treated.

    It is always a very positive experience from the time I walk through the door until I leave. -Charles Nogle
  3. Non-invasive with few side effects - Physical therapy avoids the difficulties surgical scar tissue can create and serves as a safe and effective alternative to addictive opioids for long-term pain management.

    After physical therapy, I hardly ever have to take pain medication and feel so much better. -Beverly Schwab
  4. Be equipped with tools to manage/reduce pain -Knowledge is power; so the more you understand about your condition the better you are able to make decisions and advocate for your own care. Learn stretches, strengthening exercises, and how to utilize myofascial self-release equipment such as foam rollers.

    I feel encouraged that I can be more active now but using the knowledge I have; I can be more mindful of my limits. -Karen Kane
  5. Minimal cost - Depending on your insurance plan, you may be covered at 100% or only be responsible for a small percentage of the treatment or have a co-payment for each office visit.

    The therapy expedited my healing process. -Nancy Heiser
