Large-Scale Study Finds Connection Between Early Physical Therapy and Lower Opioid Use

And among those who do wind up taking opioids during the episode of care, researchers identified an association, albeit less strong, between early physical therapy and reduced number of pills taken for 3 of the 4 conditions.
