What Is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a form of rehabilitation that incorporates a variety
of exercises and treatments to bring you back to optimal health. Physical
therapy focuses on restoring mobility and function, and the prevention
of further disability. Your ability to perform daily tasks at the highest
level of function is important to us. Whether you find movement constrained
due to injury, health problems, or recent surgery, physical therapy seeks
to restore you to full functional capacity.
Our physical therapists work with individuals to prevent mobility loss
by developing fitness and wellness programs for healthier and more active
lifestyles. Physical therapists evaluate patients with a wide range of
orthopedic and neurological conditions.

muscle tightness, de-conditioning) that are affecting your overall function.
Step 2: Setting Goals
Once your intial evaluation is complete, goals will be discussed. Your
goals may involve pain reduction,increase fitness, enhanced strength and
flexibility, improved balance, return to work or sports and many others.
Step 3: Treatment
A specific treatment plan will consist of one on one patient to therapist
interaction through the use of manual therapy techniques, localized modalities
and supervised conditions programs. In addition, individualized programs
will be developed, educating you on how to do independent home exercise
to further the progress of your therapy.
Step 4: Education & Wellness
The primary goal is to teach you how to heal yourself and prevent future
injury. You will be a part of the team and participate in the treatment
course given. Wellness is the key to a future that is pain-free, giving
you the freedom of movement and the ability to live life to its fullest.
