Who Are Physical Therapists ?

Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility. In many cases this can be done without expensive surgery and often reduces the need for long term use of prescription medications. PTs treat everyone, from newborns to elders, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit the patient’s abilities to move and perform activities in their daily lives. We are able to assist with a large range of health-related  conditions which includes (but is not limited to) general physical injuries, post-operative orthopedic surgery, chronic pain, headaches, spine pain, soft tissue disorders, musculoskeletal dysfunctions and other physical disabilities.

Patients can be educated by their therapists how to prevent or manage their condition to achieve long-term health benefits. PTs examine each individual and develop a plan to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

Physical Therapists provide care for people in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, outpatient clinics, home health agencies, schools, sports and fitness facilities, work settings, hospices, and nursing homes.
