Why Physical Therapy?
The aim of physical therapy is to swiftly reduce pain, improve mobility, and re-establish integrity of a neuromuscular condition. This can be achieved using manual therapies, exercises, and stretches. In some cases, physical therapy is treatment enough to overcome injuries and certain medical disorders. Other times, you may receive physical therapy in addition to surgery and/or medications.
Physical therapists (PTs) are movement specialists. They have specialized training to identify and treat neuromuscular conditions affecting the entire body. Your physical therapist will also help you learn to treat yourself and prevent future or further injury.

When to Choose PT
