How does physical therapy help?

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

  • avoiding surgery

  • improved mobility and movement

  • recovery from injury or trauma

  • recovery from stroke or paralysis

  • fall prevention

  • improved balance

  • 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.
