Why Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy will improve mobility, regain strength and movement after or before surgery, reduce the risk of injury, avoid surgery, and eliminate pain without medication.  No matter what area of the body ails you – neck, shoulder, back, knee – physical therapists can help individuals improve their quality of life.  Regular activities like playing golf, working at the computer or picking up around the house may seem harmless, but these everyday activities can result in injury because of abnormal movement, stress on joints and strain on muscles.   A physical therapist can help you learn to move freely again without pain and discomfort.  They can even help you prevent an injury altogether.

What is a Physical Therapist?

A physical therapist is a licensed medical professional that can help improve or restore the mobility you need in your daily life.   If you are looking for a possible alternative to surgery and/or pain medication, consider a physical therapist.   Physical therapists apply research and proven techniques to help people get back to pain free movement.   All physical therapists are required to receive a graduate degree – either a master’s degree or a clinical doctorate before taking the national and state licensure examination that allows them to practice.  They are trusted health care professionals with extensive clinical experience who examine, diagnose, and then prevent or treat conditions that limit the body’s ability to move and function in daily life.
