Adding CBD to Your Physical Therapy Service Offerings

It is important to stay on the cutting edge of physical therapy so that you can offer your patients the treatments necessary to their rehab and recovery. With the rise of topical hemp-derived CBD products, now is your time to offer patients alternative relief for sore muscles and joints. The key to incorporating CBD into your physical therapy practice is determining the best possible mediums to use in conjunction with services. At MeyerPT, we can help you find the professional cannabidiol (CBD) products that are right for your services and practice.

Let’s explore the different physical therapy services and how topical hemp-derived CBD could be added as an adjunct therapy.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy makes up a significant portion of the services you offer. Massage-based services could include anything from myofascial release and compression to stretching. Although massage therapy is typically offered in clinic, adding an adjunct therapy like a topical hemp-derived CBD product could carry the service home with the patient.

Hemp-derived CBD massage oils and creams are formulated with high-quality ingredients that work to facilitate relief from surface level to deep tissue. By using these products during a massage, you can offer patients a more comprehensive treatment. Help your patients with their rehabilitation by offering a variety of massage therapies that are complemented by a hemp-derived CBD massage oil or cream.  

Analgesics 

Analgesics are one of the most common adjunct therapies. Consider swapping out some of your most-used analgesics for hemp-derived alternatives, like creams, ointments, or lotions formulated with analgesics. These products typically contain the same active ingredients as the analgesics you currently use. Camphor, lidocaine, and menthol are paired with hemp-derived CBD to offer alternative relief for stiff, sore muscles. 

Hemp-derived CBD products formulated with analgesics provide many of the same benefits as traditional analgesics. They offer localized relief where product is applied, whether that be a sore elbow or strained knee. When adding hemp-derived CBD products formulated with analgesics to a patient treatment plan, you will find there are many avenues you can take in regard to product selection.

Soothe & Ease Tension

Help your patients get back to their active lifestyles by developing treatment plans that soothe sore muscles and ease away tension with topical hemp-derived CBD products. Stress often exacerbates current conditions, so it is crucial to provide patients with adjunct therapies they can perform in the comfort of their home. Topical hemp-derived CBD products are ideal for targeting tension and discomfort—plus they are easy to use. At MeyerPT, we offer a variety of topical hemp-derived CBD products to support your patients at home, including body balms, roll-ons, bath bombs, and body lotions.
