Who Are Physical Therapists

Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated , licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility- in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long term use of prescription medications and their side effects. They treat newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform activities in their daily lives.  Health-related  conditions such as physical injury, post-operative orthopedic surgery, chronic pain, Headaches, spine pain ,soft tissue disorders, musculoskeletal  dysfunctions and other physical disabilities that may result from disease and other health disorders are just some of the conditions treated by Physical Therapists.

Physical therapists can teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so that they will achieve long-term  health benefits. PTs examine each individual and develop a plan, using techniques to promote the ability to move, restore function, reduce pain, and prevent disability. In addiiton, PTs work with individuals 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.
