What is Physical Therapy?


The health care profession of physical therapy is concerned with health promotion, prevention, and rehabilitation of persons living with pain, disease, or injury. Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants are trusted healthcare professionals that are licensed and have graduated from an accredited physical therapy program. Physical Therapists use research and proven techniques to help people who suffer from conditions that limit the body's ability to move and function in daily life. Physical Therapists evaluate each patient to develop an individualized program to help you move, reduce pain, and restore function.
