What Is Physical Therapy?

therapyPhysical therapy is a type of rehabilitative medicine that is used to treat disease, injury or deformity.  Our physical therapists work with patients to help them reduce pain, increase flexibility and restore or improve mobility. It is also used to improve the overall health of the patient by prevention, wellness and disease management.

Physical therapy focuses on the diagnosing and treatment of the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system includes any area within your body that gives you the ability to move, including:

•       Bones

•       Muscles

•       Cartilage

•       Ligaments

•       Tendons

•       Connective tissues

•       Joints

Physical therapy can prove to be helpful in a wide range of circumstances. Here are a few cases in which physical therapy may be right for you.

•       Patients after orthopedic surgery or serious injury

•       Patients lacking mobility or function

•       Patients with pain (lingering, sharp, centralized or dull)

•       Patients with a disability or deformity

Since you know your own body better than anyone, it is important to listen to the cues it may be giving you. If you notice something is off, do not delay to get it checked out.
