Therapists Discuss Common Conditions, Treatment for Challenges During COVID-19 on WFMJ

October is National Physical Therapy Month and Ohio Sports & Spine Institute’s therapy team is encouraging Mahoning Valley residents with chronic pain and other long-lasting health conditions, as well as those with aches and pains enhanced during the pandemic, to capitalize on the many benefits of physical therapy.

WFMJ’s Andrew DiPaolo joins therapists at Ohio Sports’ Boardman clinic to discuss common conditions they have been seeing in patients since the start of the pandemic and ways to alleviate the aches and pain.

They also discuss how massotherapy provides physical and mental benefits, especially during the pandemic.

Finally, they walk through what to expect from an initial evaluation with a physical therapist.

Check out the three WFMJ interview segments here.
