Physical therapy includes services for the diagnosis, treatment, management of movement dysfunction and improvement of physical mobility. Physical therapy evaluations and treatments are completed by licensed physical therapists and trained support personnel. Physical therapy may be an alternative solution to expensive surgery, and in some cases may be required for post surgery recovery.
The purpose of physical therapy treatments is to restore, maintain and enhance optimal physical function and mobility. Physical therapy treatments are individualized programs that are designed according to a patients condition. Treatments typically address recovering from an existing injury, preventing the advancement of physical limitations, minimizing mobility restrictions, or resolving disabilities caused by accidents, sports, occupational related injuries, diseases or other life conditions.
