What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities including injuries sustained in accidents, lower back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries, post- surgical conditions and cerebral palsy.

Physical therapists examine patient medical histories and then test and measure strength, range of motion, balance and coordination, posture, muscle performance, respiration and motor function.

A physical therapist can also determine a patient's ability to move about independently and whether a patient is ready to return to his or her community or workplace after an injury or illness. Once these tasks are accomplished, the physical therapist will develop a treatment strategy and advise the patient on its purpose and anticipated outcome.
