Physical therapy begins with a physical therapy assessment for the treatment or prevention of a disability, injury, disease, or other health condition, in the effort to rehabilitate patients by the use of manual therapy, education, and techniques such as heat, cold, water, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation. These assessments are completed by interacting with our highly trained and experienced physical therapists through observation, verbal, or hands-on determinations of the function of the musculoskeletal or neuromuscular system, including range of motion measurements, strength testing, postural attitudes, biomechanical function, locomotion, for the purpose of making recommendations for treatment plan.

PTs examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. They help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility – in many cases they can help the patient avoid the need for surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications. Physical therapy can help with recovery after some surgeries too. Patients receive their treatment plan over a period of three to four weeks normally consisting of 12 sessions. The treatment plan helps the patient move better and may relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and fitness levels. The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed. The goals are to help joints move better and to restore or increase flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and/or balance. Physical therapy teaches patients how to prevent or manage their condition and can achieve long-term health benefits.
