What Physical Therapists Do
Physical Therapists have the incredible opportunity to impact a person’s life and make a difference in how well they live through how well they move. Their work involves extensive contact with people - with both patients and other healthcare professionals.
For people with health problems, the physical therapist assists in the recovery process - making them stronger, relieving their pain, and helping them regain use of an affected limb to return to things they love to do.
Another role of the physical therapist is keeping people well and safe from injury. PT's do this by teaching people the importance of fitness and showing them how to avoid injuries, at work or at play.
Physical therapy promotes optimal physical performance and enables health-conscious people to increase their overall fitness level, muscular strength, and endurance.
