physical therapy.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is the rehabilitative process of restoring physical function and mobility, maintaining physical function, and promoting physical activity and proper function. Physical therapy is a comprehensive experience that begins with an initial evaluation and extends through the restorative and preventative stages of recovery.

What Does a Physical Therapist Do?

Physical therapists (PTs) are highly trained health care professionals who treat individuals with medical conditions that limit their functional mobility. PTs examine each individual, and develop a plan using treatment techniques to improve the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. Physical therapists also take preemptive measures, working with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs through the development of targeted fitness and wellness programs.

A physical therapist’s evaluation process will typically consist of taking the patient’s medical history, conducting a systems review, and performing tests and measures to identify potential and existing problems. To establish treatment plans, physical therapists then perform evaluations, synthesizing the examination data and determining whether the problems to be addressed are within the scope of physical therapist practice. Based on their judgments, physical therapists then offer consultations, conduct re-examinations, modify those consultations as necessary, and develop and implement discharge plans.

The Benefits of Physical Therapy

If you are in need of physical therapy due to pain, injury, or an orthopedic condition, Professional Physical Therapy can help you get back to the activities you love.

At Professional, we understand that not all injuries are created equal…and neither should treatment plans. While injuries can be very similar from one person to the next, we realize that each person’s needs and goals are unique. That’s why we believe in treating the entire person, not just their injury. In addition, many of our clinicians have advanced certifications and training, with the ability to offer specialized therapeutics, such as McKenzie Method®, Manual Therapy, Vestibular Therapy, TMJ Therapy, and many others.

Here are just some of the ways our patients benefit from physical therapy:

Pain management with reduced need for opioids
