How Physical Therapy Can Help
Physical therapy can help you live more comfortably with ongoing health
conditions which may be chronic. We can help you recover from an injury
and help reduce the possibility of future injury through reduced discomfort;
improved strength, function, and mobility; and education so you can help
maintain your own health.
Physical therapy can help you move freely again by reducing your discomfort
and improving your flexibility and motion. Through education and our skills,
we can even help reduce future injury. Whether you are living with diabetes
or other limiting disease, or recovering from a stroke, a fall, or a sports
injury, a physical therapist is a trusted health care professional who
will work closely with you to evaluate your condition and develop and
effective, personalize plan of care. A physical therapist can help you
achieve short and long term goals for many conditions that limit your
ability to move. Because physical therapists are highly skilled in knowing
how the body works, they are able to work with you and design a personalized
treatment plan to improve your condition and reduce the risk of injury
whether in everyday activities or sports.
Physical therapists work with other health care professionals, including
your doctor, and collaborate with each other to develop treatment plans
for our clients using the latest research and proven approaches to ensure
positive outcomes. We have a shared goal of creating healthier, satisfied clients.
Physical therapists receive specialized education in a variety of sciences,
physics, human anatomy, kinesiology (the study of human movement), and
physiology (function). They also know how to manage all four of the body's
major systems – musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular/pulmonary,
and integumentary (skin) – to restore and maximize functional mobility.
Physical therapists examine, evaluate, and treat patients who have conditions
such as back and neck pain, wounds, developmental disabilities, carpal
tunnel syndrome, joint replacements, sports injuries, and many other conditions
that may affect a person's function and mobility. They are highly
skilled in providing programs that can help limit the adverse effects
of conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, and strokes.
