What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a non-invasive, personal, and direct treatment that helps patients maintain or restore maximum physical function. Physical therapy can be done at any age and is used to treat injuries, aid in the healing process, relieve pain, treat a chronic condition, and prevent future injuries. The main goal of physical therapy is to improve both your health and overall quality of life. Physical therapists will generally conduct an evaluation by physically examining you and looking over your medical history. Using this information, the physical therapist will recommend a treatment plan, recommend a certain number of repeat visits in order to monitor your progress, and provide hands-on support during exercise routines.
Physical therapists will also recommend treatments to help keep your body working at its best. They will even show you how you can avoid injury while working, having fun, or working out. In order to better evaluate your body, your physical therapist will assess your joint motion, functional ability, balance and coordination, muscle performance, posture, function of your heart and lungs, and daily activities. This will give him or her better insight into your needs and goals.
