You just left the doctor’s office with a script in hand to see a physical therapist for an injury or
illness that’s preventing you from moving properly. Even though the physician shared some
background information on the services, you have never been to physical therapy before and
don’t know it all works. What’s the next step?
Celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of a new one has become synonymous with
establishing resolutions for the 12 months ahead. Marking the new year with a list of goals—whether
lofty or simple—is a chance to improve upon the year prior.
When most people hear the words “physical therapy,” they immediately think of rehabilitation for

physical therapy can be divided into many distinct practice areas.
The symptoms of major depressive disorder, the most common type of depression, range from an overwhelming feeling of sadness and loss of interest in most activities to insomnia and cognitive difficulties. Medications—including antidepressants such selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)—and psychotherapy are common treatment options but some experts are now singing the praises of a cheap and easy alternative: exercise. Many experts are studying whether exercise, either alone or in combination with other treatments, can help those suffering from depression, a mental illness that affects 25% of Americans.

Fitness May Help Ward Off Depression in Girls. Being in good physical condition likely to help boys avoid the blues too, expert says
By Tara Haelle
THURSDAY, Aug. 7, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- The more fit middle-school girls are, the less likely they may be to develop symptoms of depression, according to a recent study.
Although the effect of fitness on depression was small, improvements in fitness may be part of an overall strategy for reducing the risk of depression in middle-schoolers, according to Camilo Ruggero, lead researcher and an assistant professor of psychology at the University of North Texas. Other strategies might include school-based or family therapy, which can both treat and help prevent depression in at-risk kids.
Why get surgery if you don’t need it? Those who experience nontraumatic rotator cuff tears, for example, would do just as well with "conservative treatment" such as physical therapy.
That's according to a study published in Bone and Joint Journal ("Treatment of nontraumatic rotator cuff tears: A randomised controlled trial with one-year clinical results" – January 2014), which found that patients who received physical therapy alone for rotator cuff tears showed similar rates of physical improvement and patient satisfaction to those who received arthroscopic surgery or open surgical repair, combined with physical therapy.
