What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is often a mystery to many people. Most people have never experienced physical therapy firsthand and have very little idea of what physical therapy entails. Some people even come to therapy feeling that they’re wasting their time, certain that therapy has nothing to offer them and their condition (these people often become our biggest cheerleaders following treatment).

In the most basic sense, physical therapy works to restore function to people’s bodies. Therapy can help reduce pain, improve movement/balance, and restore physical abilities. Unlike many prescription medications that simply mask the symptoms, therapy is designed to eliminate and solve problems. In addition to working to improve problems in your body, a good physical therapist will educate you as to how your injury occurred and how you can avoid problems in the future.
