What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is the treatment of injury or physical dysfunction to the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems. Physical therapy focuses on achieving pain-free optimal functioning to enhance the quality of life through the use of therapeutic exercises/activities, modalities, and manual therapy.
Physical therapy aids in educating you on the best way to care for your symptoms now and into the future. Including problems with pain, weakness, and limited mobility. Not only does therapy bring relief from symptoms with each passing visit, it builds your strength and/or endurance enabling you to decrease, if not prevent, your symptoms from occurring. In addition it helps to speed up recovery from injuries and surgeries.
