What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a healthcare discipline focused on the rehabilitation and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Using a combination of active and passive treatment interventions, physical therapists help their patients recover from surgery or trauma, alleviate chronic pain, increase mobility and generally improve the quality of their day-to-day lives.

What are the benefits?

Patients of all ages and physical abilities can benefit from physical therapy. Even if you’re not currently experiencing any functional difficulties, a physical therapist can identify areas of imbalance or weakness that may lead to future issues and then develop a preventative program to correct them. Annual physical therapy consultations and musculoskeletal wellness screenings are fast becoming recognized as a crucial component of preventative health care.
