Physical therapists assist in the rehabilitation process for people with health problems resulting from an injury or disease. We assess and develop treatment goals and shape personalized programs that meet the needs of each individual. Whether your goal is walking independently or running a marathon, your physical therapy begins with a comprehensive evaluation. A treatment plan is developed to meet your needs and achieve your goals. Treatment focuses on increasing strength, relieving pain, self-management techniques and preventing further injury. Your treatment plan may also include education for you and your family on self-care at home to ensure continued healing.
