Physical Therapy (or PT) includes evaluation, assessment, and treatment for chronic pain, decreased strength, injuries, and mobility limitations. A Physical Therapist is trained to assess your condition then treat you using a variety of physical healing methods to help you move better and feel better; treatment is very personalized.
Physical Therapy can help treat pain and mobility issues stemming from broken bones, stroke, spinal cord injury,
carpal tunnel syndrome, sports injuries, amputations, arthritis, and much more. PT can also help prevent injury or loss of functional mobility.
Working with a Physical Therapist is an active treatment-where you will often get education and take home exercises to help the healing process.
