Physical Therapy
A physical therapist is a health care professional who evaluates a patient’s condition and then plans and administers treatments to promote optimal health. Physical therapists seek to relieve pain, improve the body’s movement and function, maintain cardiopulmonary function, and limit disabilities resulting from injury or disease.

Physical therapists take your health history, observe your posture and movement, and use their hands to feel and evaluate problem areas. Treatment may include—but is not limited to—the following:

  • Therapeutic use of hands
  • Exercise
  • Application of therapeutic techniques such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation
  • Training in daily living activities
  • Patient education

Physical therapist assistants work under the supervision of physical therapists to assist you in reaching your treatment goals.
