Physical therapy is evaluation and treatment to help you prevent injury or recover from disability caused by an injury, a disease or other health condition. It can also prevent a disability from getting worse. Physical therapists provide treatment by physical or mechanical means, such as through exercise, heat or mild electrical current, and will also provide education, instruction and support for recovery.
The goals of physical therapy are to relieve your pain, improve your mobility (such as walking, going up stairs or getting in and out of bed) and restore your physical function and overall fitness. Depending on your injury, disease or condition, you may need to work on flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination and/or balance. To do this, your treatment may focus on:
Your muscles, tendons, ligaments & bones (musculoskeletal system)
Your spinal cord & nerves (nervous system)
Your heart & circulation
A combination of these or additional therapies
If a physical problem is limiting what you can do in your daily life and activities, physical therapy can help. This is true for people of all ages and physical abilities. If you’ve had an injury, physical therapy can help you increase your range of motion and strengthen your muscles. This will help you in your activities and prevent future problems. A physical therapist can also evaluate how you perform a physical activity and make suggestions for doing it in a way that is less likely to result in an injury. We treat many patients with:
Low back pain & neck pain
Numbness, tingling & weakness
Sciatica (leg pain)
Arthritis, osteoarthritis & degenerative joints
Musculoskeletal injuries & muscle weakness
