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.
