What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a health discipline that aims to help individuals develop, restore, or maintain
body movement, flexibility, and physical function. This type of treatment aims to improve health
and quality of life by helping individuals recover from an injury, relieve pain, deal with a chronic
health condition, or prevent future damage. Anyone at any age can benefit from physical
therapy and seek this type of treatment.
When seeing a physical therapist, you can expect them to do a full evaluation, including a look
at medical history and current physical abilities and conditions. Based on their assessment, your
physical therapist will develop a treatment plan designed specifically for you to help you improve
your health, get rid of pain, improve mobility, and improve your quality of life. Furthermore, your
physical therapist will help you hands-on with your exercise plan and monitor your progress
