Physical Therapy

physical therapy2In practical terms, Physical Therapy has been defined as a form of healthcare that looks at the body as a whole and identifies how a disease, injury, or impairment affects that body from operating at its normal full potential, and then assists the patient to prevent, correct, or alleviate the source of their problem.

People frequently seek physical therapy to address movement dysfunctions of musculoskeletal or neuromuscular origins involving the spine, joints and their surrounding muscles and soft tissue. A detailed physical therapy examination will assist the patient in identifying the underlying cause of their movement dysfunction, and will aid the licensed physical therapist in development of a specific treatment plan aimed at assisting the patient to correct or adapt to their movement dysfunction.
