Physical Therapy for Lyme Disease

Western Berks Physical Therapy & Wellness Center has expanded its professional and expert service in patient care with a growing concern for those who suffer with Lyme Disease.

Lyme Disease is an inflammatory infection caused by the bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, which is transmitted through tick bites. In the eastern United States, Lyme is spread by the deer tick, known as the black-legged tick (lxodes scapularis.) Symptoms of Lyme Disease are not necessarily the same for every infected individual, however the most common early signs of the disease include flu-like symptoms and a rash. Late-stage Lyme Disease symptoms can occur weeks, months, or even years after the initial exposure.

Symptoms of Lyme Disease often include:

  • Constant fatigue
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain or swelling
  • Tingling/numbness or burning sensations
  • Headaches with neck and back stiffness
  • Poor balance
