What Does a Physical Therapist Do?
Physical therapists (PTs), known as ‘the movement experts’ are trained in how a body moves and functions. They are able to detect mal-alignments in the body structure and various movements and work with you to help resolve any issues you might be having. PTs help with pain management, help to promote proper healing, work to restore functions and prevent any disabilities. PT treatment can help you find ways to manage your own pain and body in the best way that is also convenient to your lifestyle. Each person responds to PT differently, so finding a therapist that focuses on the individuality of your body and not just the pain is vital to proper treatment.
