What Is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy uses various forms of exercise techniques and "hands on" therapy, often in conjunction with physical modalities such as heat, ice, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and water.
Physical therapists help reduce symptoms, correct physical problems, and educate the patient in preventing future problems. Physical therapists routinely work with patients suffering from problems related to strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, coordination, function, and pain.
A physical therapist is a licensed medical professional, trained to evaluate and treat the side effects and disabilities caused by injuries and illness.
