Every October the American Physical Therapy Association recognizes practitioners across the nation. Everyday our physical therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants help their patients. Their goal is to help them move better so that they may return to their regular activities. While we see the incredible work of our therapists daily, we also would like to join the rest of industry in celebrating all clinicians’ efforts.
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapists are experts in movement, they diagnose and treat MSK-related symptoms and conditions. The primary goal of physical therapy is to improve and/or restore physical movement.
A PT may use a combination of hands-on therapy, stretching, strength training and cardiovascular conditioning. These techniques help patients gain strength, increase range of motion and reduce pain.
