What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy focuses on treating impairments, pain, and loss of function due to injury, illness, old age, or other causes.
Working with a physical therapist can help speed up your recovery, and save you money due to decreased overall healthcare costs.
Physical therapists use a variety of therapies and approaches, such as stretches, physical movement, and exercises, as well as education about posture and other safe activities.
The goal of physical therapy is to improve mobility, function, and quality of life.
Patients with injuries often develop weakness, muscle atrophy, and stiffness from immobility.
It is essential to have the patient regain mobility, strength, and endurance as quickly and safely as possible in order to avoid any permanent injury, impairment, or loss of function.
