Is a Physical Therapist Right for Me?

Physical therapists are your perfect partners in health. They are experts in the way the body moves. As highly educated health care professionals, physical therapists help you maintain mobility and quality of life without surgery or prescription medication, in many cases. 

Physical therapists can get you moving and enjoying life again, using scientifically-based treatment techniques that focus on restoring function, reducing pain, and preventing injury.

A physical therapist, often in collaboration with you and your physician, will work to help you achieve a healthy, active lifestyle and can help you manage your health over the long term.

What Can You Expect from a Physical Therapist?

Because physical therapists have a master’s degree or clinical doctorate, you can expect the best professional care. On your first visit, your physical therapist will spend a significant amount of time evaluating your condition and determining when and why it occurs. We understand the road to recovery is personal, so you will always receive a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.

In many cases, physical therapy can help avoid costly and painful surgery. For instance, studies reveal that patients receiving physical therapy for neck pain were less likely to seek additional medical care. Your physical therapist can also help find a way to make life easier for you without the need for pain medication.
