If you’re dealing with chronic back pain, an injury that occurred while running, or a nagging pain that came out of nowhere, there’s a safe and effective way to treat all these issues, and it’s physical therapy. Gina Otterbein and Julie Blodgett, both physical therapists here at Northern, stopped by the studios of WOOD TV’s eightWest in Grand Rapids and talked with Rachael Ruiz about some of the benefits that physical therapy can provide to people of all ages and medical conditions.

Physical therapy is a safe and effective way to treat an injury or constant pain, it reduces the chance for surgery, reduces healthcare costs, and reduces the need for prescription medications. Primary care doctors often refer patients to physical therapy at the first sign of a problem because it’s considered a safe, natural, and effective approach to managing the pain.
