Physical therapists have a Clinical Doctorate Degree and apply research and proven techniques to help people of all ages get back in motion and improve or restore the mobility you need to move forward with your life.
Caring to Suit Your Needs
Physical therapists provide care for people in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, outpatient clinics, home health agencies, schools, sports and fitness facilities, work settings, and nursing homes. Blending science with inspiration, your physical therapist will teach you how to prevent or manage a health condition and help motivate you during your treatment so you can function optimally.
Physical Therapists Diagnose and Treat people of all ages, including newborns, children, and elderly individuals. They may consult and practice with other health professionals to help you improve your mobility and they can also provide a possible alternative to surgery and/or pain medication.
