What is Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy is a highly specialized healthcare profession focused on the interaction of the various body systems and their effect on a person’s ability to move and perform functional activities. Physical Therapists work with people of all ages. The goals of Physical Therapy are to promote a person’s ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, prevent disability and improve overall quality of life.

A Physical Therapist will perform a thorough assessment to identify current and potential problems. Based on the findings from the initial assessment, a Physical Therapist will help a person develop a Plan of Care with anticipated treatment options, goals and expected time frames, individualized to the person’s particular needs and expectations.
