Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a profession of choice to treat movement disorders and pain.  Physical Therapists receive specialized training in many sciences such as human anatomy, kinesiology (the science of human movement), and physics, just to name a few.  A physical therapist will use “hands on” techniques such as therapeutic exercise, functional training, as well as modalities (such as ultra sound, electrical stimulation and laser) to treat symptoms and address the source of dysfunction.  Physical Therapists  are health care professionals who evaluate and treat people of all ages, from “weekend warriors” to elite athletes, from children to mature adults.   PT’s also help prevent health conditions through prevention, restoration of function and through exercise and treatment techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability.
