Physical Therapy

What is a physical therapist?

Physical Therapists are healthcare professionals that evaluate and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions, illnesses, or injuries that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities. Physical therapists use an individual's history and physical examination to establish a treatment plan to promote mobility, functional ability, and quality of life.
