WHAT IS PHYSICAL THERAPY?
Therapy Session Physical therapists are licensed health care professionals who evaluate and treat people with health problems resulting from injury or disease. They measure many different aspects of human function including muscle strength, joint range of motion, endurance, and balance. They assess where the deficits are causing pain or decreased function. Using this information, physical therapists develop a treatment plan to promote the patient's well being.
