Physical Therapy Overview

Physical therapy is a healthcare specialty for the treatment and management of a range of neurologic and musculoskeletal conditions. Patients often seek physical therapy after an injury, illness, or surgery, while treating and managing a medical condition, or to enhance sports performance and prevent injury or disability.

Physical therapists are licensed, highly-trained specialists who evaluate and treat musculoskeletal disorders. Using a variety of techniques, including manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, and aquatic therapy, physical therapists address each individual patient's needs to improve mobility and strength and enhance quality of life.
