What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is the practice dedicated to restoring and preserving musculoskeletal functions. Physical therapy can reduce pain, help avoid certain surgeries, improve mobility, help recover from a stroke, recover from or prevent sports injuries, or manage diabetes and heart issues. Everyone can benefit from physical therapy.
