What is Physical Therapy (PT)?
Physical Therapy (PT) focuses on the treatment of sports-related or other injuries that can be painful or debilitating if left untreated. While Physical Therapy is often prescribed for post-surgical rehabilitation, a program that is well designed and conscientiously followed may help patients to avoid surgery entirely.
Who Are Typical Candidates for Physical Therapy?
There are numerous scenarios that may call for physical therapy. Here are some of the most common:
- Athletes seeking to recover from or prevent an injury
- Accident victims (car accident, work-related injury, slip-and-falls)
- Pregnant women experiencing back pain or muscle strains
- Patients who need to regain strength and balance following surgery
