Physical therapy takes a one on one biomechanics approach through a manual exercise program, to help with limitations and dysfunctions being experienced and curtailed to your specific needs. PTs are healthcare professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions, illnesses, or injuries that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities as well as they would like in their daily lives.
Depending on your health problems, your PT will help you with flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and balance. First, your PT will try to reduce your pain and swelling. Then he or she will work to increase your flexibility, strength, and endurance. Physical therapy almost always includes exercise in the form of stretching, core exercises, weight lifting, and walking in the clinic or a program you can do it at home.
Your PT may use manual therapy, education, and techniques such as heat, cold, water, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation. Because the body of knowledge of physical therapy is quite large, some PTs specialize in a specific clinical area. While there are many different types of physical therapy, your PT will work with your Chiropractor to assess your over all health care goals, examine you, and structure a treatment plan.
