Physical Therapy

Physical therapists assist patient recovery from surgery, injury and disorders of the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. Physical therapists evaluate, diagnose and manage the physical therapy treatment plan, customizing it to each individual patient’s needs.

The ultimate goal of physical therapy is to restore maximal functional independence to each individual patient. To achieve this goal, a variety of exercise interventions, education, functional activities, manual therapy and physical modalities such as heat, cold and electricity are used. It is offered to a wide variety of patients of all ages. Physical therapy is useful in treating many different medical disorders and plays a key role in the rehabilitative process.
