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
What to Expect From Your Physical Therapist
Physical therapists apply research and validated methods to help people get back in motion. All physical therapists are required to receive a graduate degree, either a masters or a clinical doctorate, from an accredited physical therapist curriculum prior to taking the national licensing exam which enables them to practice. State licenses are required in each state in which a physical therapist practices. They are trusted health care professionals with significant clinical experience who examine, diagnose, and then prevent or treat problems that limit the body’s ability to move and function in daily life.
Blending science with encouragement, your physical therapist will teach you how to avoid or handle a health disorder and help encourage you during your treatment so you can function efficiently. Your physical therapist will collaborate with you to help you have knowledge of your body so you will realize lasting health benefits. A physical therapist is your partner throughout your voyage to revitalizing and maintaining motion so you can perform at your personal best.
