Our Mission is Your Recovery

Physical Therapy

Who are Physical Therapists?

Physical therapists (PTs) are specialists in restoring movement. PTs receive intensive doctoral education in anatomy, physiology, pathology and rehabilitation. It is among the fastest growing professions because of the value PTs provide for our increasingly active society. All PTs are graduates of accredited university programs and licensed by the state in which they work.


Physical Therapy

It all starts with an evaluation. The therapist spends your first visit, a full hour, interviewing you, establishing goals, testing and examining your condition and setting up a treatment plan. The therapist teaches you about your condition and reassures you about what to expect during the recovery process.

 

Subsequent treatment sessions systematically fix the injuries, movement disorders and pain that brought you in the door in the first place. The key tool of the therapist is his/her hands-on techniques to stretch and mobilize stiff, misaligned and restricted areas of your body. Once mobility is improved, then exercises are used to improve strength, balance and function. Injured athletes looking to return to sports often perform sport-specific training under the supervision of the therapist.
