WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF PHYSICAL THERAPY?

Rehabilitation

Physical Therapists work to rehabilitate injuries, build strength, prevent falls, and assist in recovery. They help patients resume regular life activities such as walking, exercising, building strength, increasing flexibility, and maintaining your balance.

Therapists work with patients to create a treatment plan that can help patients experience less pain, move more freely, and restore proper function. In addition, they provide evaluation reports and periodic progress reports to the patient’s physician for continuity of care.
