Information

What Is Physical Therapy?
 
Physical Therapy is a health care profession that rehabilitates persons experiencing pain, loss of movement, and/or loss of function. A Physical Therapist performs a careful evaluation, including:
 
  • Extensive assessment of your history.
  • Observation of your posture and/or alignment.
  • Evaluation of the quantity and quality of your available movement.
  • Testing of your muscle strength, flexibility and/or coordination.
  • Any other special tests needed to assess or understand your problem.
 
From this evaluation process, the Physical Therapist formulates a treatment plan designed to address each aspect of your problem.
 
Treatment May Include:
 
  • Manual (hands-on) techniques to mobilize joints or improve mobility in soft tissue. Might be augmented with tools or integrative dry needling.
  • Instruction and assistance in exercises specific to your problem.
  • Education regarding improved posture, movement patterns and self treatment (management/prevention) techniques.
  • Various forms of heat, cold, light (cold laser) and electrical therapies may be used to complement your hands-on treatment.
 
The goals of Physical Therapy are to decrease pain and restore normal movement and function. You should consult with your Physical Therapist regarding your own personal rehabilitation goals.
