Why Go To Physical Therapy?

When you have a problem with your body there are many treatment options available to you in both traditional medicine and alternative medicine sources. While physical therapy is incapable of curing all problems, medical research shows that therapy is a highly effective choice for treating many conditions. In fact, physical therapy has been shown to be as effective as surgery for many conditions. Perhaps the most outstanding part of physical therapy is that we are one of the few specialties that still provide hands-on care to patients. We also spend time listening and educating our patients. Most importantly, we focus on a solution to your problem. We do not mask your problem or simply treat the symptoms. We want to alleviate your problem permanently. We also educate you in ways to avoid future problems. After all, the best injury is the one that is prevented before it can happen.
