Physical Therapy

Restoring Mobility 

Physical therapy is a “hands on” approach to rehabilitation. Physical therapists, or PTs, evaluate and provide treatment for persons with health problems and disabilities resulting from injury, disease, overuse of muscles or tendons, pain, or loss of a body part.

Working with the patient, a physical therapist will develop a plan of care that focus on restoring the individual's mobility (movement) and function, and preventing further disability. In addition, physical therapists work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

Physical therapists may provide treatment and education regarding any of the following:

  • Mobility (movement)
  • Balance and gait retraining
  • Heat and cold therapy and massage
  • Activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Burn care
  • Casting and splinting
  • Wheelchair, walkers, canes, and crutches
  • Muscle retraining
  • Pain management
  • Cardiovascular strengthening
  • Use of orthotics (braces, splints) and prosthetics (artificial limbs)
  • Exercise programs
