What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a healthcare discipline focused on the rehabilitation and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Using a combination of active and passive treatment interventions, physical therapists help their patients recover from surgery or trauma, alleviate chronic pain, increase mobility and generally improve the quality of their day to day lives.

What are the benefits?

Patients of all ages and physical abilities can benefit from physical therapy. Even if you’re not currently experiencing any functional difficulties, a physical therapist can identify areas of imbalance or weakness that may lead to future issues and then develop a preventative program to correct them. Annual physical therapy consultations and musculoskeletal wellness screenings are fast becoming recognized as a crucial component of preventative health care.
