Physical Therapy Services

Physical Therapy

physical therapyPhysical therapy or physiotherapy (sometimes abbreviated to PT) is a branch of rehabilitative medicine aimed at helping patients maintain, recover or improve their physical abilities. Physical therapy is typically recommended for those who have been injured or have movement problems from an illness, disease, or disability.

Physical therapy programs focus on decreasing or relieving symptoms or pain and improving strength, endurance, flexibility, motor control and stability to support the return to normal, functional activities. The program includes patient education about the mechanism of injury, recovery process and preventing re-injury.

Physical therapists treat people who have functional impairments or pain resulting from orthopedic problems, such as fractures or joint replacements, back and neck problems, burns, amputations, arthritis and neurological problems, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis. Our physical therapists also work with children with developmental delay.
