Benefits of Physical Therapy

Physical therapy treatment assists in pain relief, improving movement or ability, preventing and recovering from injury, and so much more! Learn about the benefits of physical therapy.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy (PT) is a type of care where a trained physical therapist evaluates and treats irregular physical function due to an injury, disability, or other health condition.

Who Will Physical Therapy Help?

Physical therapy benefits people of all ages with injuries, illnesses, or medical conditions that limit their ability to move or function. A personalized PT program can help return individuals to their previous level of function and will encourage changes that can help prevent further injury or improve overall well-being.

Often, a health provider will recommend physical therapy to recover from an injury or at the first sign of an issue since PT treatment is an effective way to heal the body and prevent further problems.
