Physical therapy (PT) can help manage movement and reduce pain in people with neurological diseases, those who have had a traumatic injury, and other conditions. Trained professionals evaluate and take measures to enhance a person’s physical function.
According to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), physical therapists are trained and licensed movement experts. They can diagnose and treat a range of injuries, disabilities, and health conditions.
Physical therapists aim to improve a person’s range of movement and quality of life and prevent further injury or disability.
Depending on the reason for treatment, the benefits of physical therapy may include:
pain management with reduced need for opioids
improved mobility and movement
recovery from injury or trauma
recovery from stroke or paralysis
management of age-related medical problems
A sports therapist can help an athlete maximize their performance by strengthening specific parts of the body and using muscles in new ways.
