What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy is a type of treatment you need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your mobility level and prevents, diagnoses and treats movement dysfunction and enhances physical health and functional abilities.
What does a Physical Therapist do?
Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility - in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.
Physical therapists can teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so that they will achieve long-term health benefits. PTs examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed.
