Physical therapy deals with the illness, or injuries that limit a person’s mobility to perform daily functional activities. Physical therapy has also been found to be effective for improving outcomes in terms of pain and function, in multiple musculoskeletal conditions.
Though there is not enough indication to suggest that cannabidiol (CBD) improves physical therapy effectiveness, there is evidence that CBD can reduce pain and inflammation* and in some cases quicken wound healing*.
When combined with CBD, physical therapy can be adapted to each person’s needs to help with recovery, pain relief, and reduction of inflammation. CBD can be a safe accompaniment for manual therapy treatment and can give your physical therapy session an extra boost to help achieve your goals more effectively. But CBD shouldn’t be thrown into the mix for everyone. It’s something to discuss with your doctor and physical therapist.
Here are some ways of choosing and adding CBD oil to your physical therapy routine.
Choosing the right CBD
When it comes to physical therapy, using pure CBD products is better because they do not have tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which may lead to the “high” feeling that many people associate with cannabis.
Adding CBD oil to your physical therapy treatment
If you are currently in a physical therapy program for an injury or chronic pain, taking a CBD oil tincture, can help to reduce inflammation and manage pain during your session*. CBD oil tinctures are fast acting when taken under the tongue and provide whole body relief so that you can focus on the session. For best results, take the tincture under your tongue thirty minutes before your session. Effects are usually felt within 15 to 30 minutes and last up to one to two hours.
