What is physical therapy?

September 8th, 2016

Physical therapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieving symptoms and restoring function. Physical therapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and work closely with physicians. Our physical therapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your symptoms and work to reduce or eliminate them.

While every patient’s condition and symptoms are unique, your physical therapist will use a variety of gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and equipment to relieve symptoms quickly and restore your function to optimum levels. The overall goal is to restore mobility symptom free and function and to prevent your injury from recurring.
