What Is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy includes a professional evaluation, assessment, and treatment for individuals with functional mobility limitations. Physical therapy uses techniques including but not limited to stretching, strengthening, manual therapy, massage, postural assessment, coordination training, and balance training. Like other healthcare professions, physical therapists receive similar training in school, but develop their specialties through continuing education and working in the field with different populations. Therefore each physical therapist is unique in their approach to treatment.
