What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and may relieve pain. Physical therapy also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level.

The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed.

Physical therapy can help with recovery after some surgeries. Our doctor may suggest physical therapy for injuries or long-term health problems such as:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Tendon or ligament problems, such as an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, a meniscus tear, or plantar fasciitis
  • Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Spinal Stenosis, sciatica, or herniated disc
  • Shoulder or elbow pain, such as tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, or RTC (Rotator Cuff)
  • Sprains or strains
