What’s Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy is a well known and respected profession specializing in the evaluation and treatment of the musculoskeletal system. Physical therapists have the rewarding opportunity to make a positive difference in the quality of their patients’ lives. They help to manage and prevent a wide range of conditions, including orthopedic and soft tissue injuries, sports injuries, fractures and dislocations. Therapists work to make patients stronger, relieve their pain, and help them regain function so that they can resume activities of daily living such as walking, dressing or bathing. Physical Therapists strive to keep their patients healthy and safe. Understand that recovery continues after the patient has completed direct care with a therapist. Therefore, physical therapists teach their patients what they need to do at home to manage their condition so they continue to move forward.
Life is not a spectator sport, it’s meant to be lived. If pain or limited movement is keeping you from living life to its fullest, physical therapy can help.
