What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapists have gone through extensive years of education to become experts in the science and study of human body mechanics. We assess and analyze not only how and why we move as it relates to injuries, but also how we can successfully assist our patients in regaining movement that is efficient and effective for long-term health.
When one area of the body is out of alignment, it can often cause a chain reaction of other areas of the body which will end up compensating up and down the mechanical chain, whether we are aware of it or not.
It is the job of a good Physical Therapist to discover the underlying cause of dysfunction and pain, and then create the optimal exercise program and use of manual therapy techniques to create optimal body healing.
