What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieving pain and restoring function. Physical therapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. Our physical therapist will evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, through the enhancement of strength, flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.

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