What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a primary care, patient focused health profession that is dedicated to:

  • Preventing and managing pain, physical impairments, disabilities and limits to physical activity.
  • Improving and maintaining functional independence and physical performance.
  • Promoting fitness, health and wellness.

Physical therapy’s unique contribution to health care stems from its advanced understanding of how the body moves, what ailments prevent it from moving properly, and how to restore mobility. It is a service provided by, or under the direction and supervision of a licensed physical therapist and includes assessment, diagnosis, planning, intervention and evaluation.

What is included in a Physical Therapy visit?

Assessment - Evaluation of individuals with actual or potential impairments, functional limitations, disabilities, or other conditions of health. The assessment will lead to a working diagnosis and a plan of care for treatment.

Treatment - A specific plan of care designed by the therapist, patient, and referring doctor. Includes application of physical modalities, manual therapy, instruction of therapeutic exercise, functional movement training, and patient education in home exercises and ergonomics.
