Physical Therapies Q & A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a treatment physical therapists and chiropractors use to help you alleviate pain, regain range of motion after an accident or injury, and increase stamina. It’s useful for an array of conditions, including:

  • Herniated disc
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sprains
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Lymphedema
  • Tennis elbow
  • Urinary incontinence


During a typical physical therapy session, Dr. Orenczak may have you:

  • Lift light weights
  • Stretch with a rubber band
  • Decompress your spine
  • Relax in a whirlpool or sauna
  • Manipulate your joints and muscles
  • Perform a variety of therapeutic exercises

What other kinds of physical therapies are offered?

Advanced Health of Oakbrook offers a variety of physical therapy treatments to help you improve body function:

Ultrasound Therapy

The use of sound waves to reduce the inflammation, stiffness, and swelling associated with conditions like runner’s knee, tennis elbow, bursitis, muscle strains, and sprains is called ultrasound therapy. Sound waves vibrate and provoke tissue renewal.


Therapeutic high-frequency electrical currents generate heat to relieve persistent pain from muscle spasms, osteoarthritis, and joint stiffness. This type of physical therapy is reputed for speeding mobility and helping you return to your normal activities.

Aquatic Therapy/Hydrotherapy

Using hot baths, whirlpools, saunas, or wraps, Dr. Orenczak uses pulses of hot and cold water to numb your pain and boost blood flow.

Interferential Therapy (IFT/IFC)

Nature’s painkillers, called endorphins, release when low-frequency currents of electricity stimulate your troubled nerves. Neck and shoulder pain is especially responsive to IFT/IFC.

Is physical therapy safe?

Physical therapy is a safe and effective way of using exercises and movements to relieve your musculoskeletal pain and improve impaired movement. However, as with any movement therapy, it’s possible an injury can occur.

Dr. Orenczak has years of experience treating a range of health conditions with physical therapy. He prioritizes your safety and comfort by customizing treatment plans according to your specific needs and abilities.

How many treatments do I need?

If you’re like most women and men, you’ll require about six physical therapy sessions to improve your mobility and range of motion. In your personalized treatment plan, Dr. Orenczak explains the number of treatments you’re likely to require, so you know exactly what to expect.
