What is Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy is a field of science concerned with the ability and quality of motor skills or large motor activities related to movement. The patient referred to physical therapy may be disabled or delayed by illness, accident, birth defect or complications. This may result in the patient having abnormal muscle tone, impaired balance, decreased functional movement, weakness, or poor coordination. A Physical Therapist’s (PT) role includes examination, evaluation, & interventions toward achieving the highest functional outcomes for each patient/client. Patient may attend therapy for 1-2 sessions, or continue on for many months depending on their age & level of disability. A treatment plan is developed which includes a home program for the patient/family/caregiver to carry out at home.
