What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy involves utilizing a combination of manual skills, exercise, and modalities to help improve your quality of life. A physical therapist can help you move freely again without pain and discomfort and can even prevent further injury altogether.

Physical therapists receive specialized education in a variety of sciences including physics, human anatomy, and kinesiology (human movement), just to name a few. This allows them to understand how the body works and how to get you moving again. They know how to manage all four of the body's major systems musculoskeletal (muscles and bones), neuromuscular (nerves and muscles), cardiovascular/pulmonary (heart and lungs), and integumentary (skin) to restore and maximize mobility.

Whether you are suffering from an injury, living with diabetes or another disease process, or have a congenital disorder, a physical therapist can work closely with you to evaluate your condition and develop an effective, personalized plan of care. A physical therapist can help you achieve long-term results for many conditions that limit your ability to move.
