Michael Milnes obviously learned all of the benefits of physical therapy when he earned his doctorate degree in Physical Therapy, but he still gets questions about its effectiveness from clients and others. Milnes explains to his constituents that gradual and strengthening physical therapy helps to build muscle and tendon strength over time while giving patients many of the same benefits that surgery and more invasive medications provide. Physical therapy is a slow process. It relies on building strength and flexibility naturally and over time so that the body is able to heal itself and sometimes re-learn how to perform basic actions. Some patients have to learn how to walk correctly again and use their legs and arms. Others need to build strength so they can work out and exercise on their own again.
Michael Milnes has helped people recover from serious injuries such as car accidents and others. Milnes also works with athletes to help them recover from injuries faster and build strength and endurance.
