Physical Therapy is the process of restoring a patient’s normal level of function by treating a physical dysfunction or injury through the use of therapeutic exercise, manual treatment, and application of modalities.
Dispelling Common Physical Therapy Myths
There are some popular misperceptions about physical therapy. Some think physical therapy is only for the football player recovering from ACL surgery. Others may view physical therapy as something mainly for those who’ve suffered a serious and debilitating medical episode, such as a stroke. The reality is that physical therapy has a simple, straightforward goal: help a person improve or restore their physical function, move better, and relieve physical pain.
What Does a Physical Therapist Do?
A physical therapist prevents, minimizes, or eliminates impairments of body functions and structures, removes activity limitations, and participation restrictions. Their work runs through conditions involving all parts and functions of the body.
