About Physical Therapy
Physical therapists diagnose, manage, and treat disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system including rehabilitation after orthopedic surgery.
Most physical therapy is done in the out-patient clinical setting. Physical therapists are trained in the treatment of acute sports injuries, arthritis, sprains, strains, back and neck pain, spinal conditions and amputations. Joint and spine mobilization/manipulation, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular reeducation, hot/cold packs, and electrical stimulation are treatments often used to expedite recovery.
Those who have suffered injury or disease affecting the muscles, bones, ligaments, or tendons of the body will benefit from assessment and treatment by a physical therapist.
Often treatment with physical therapy can relieve back pain, leg pain, neck pain and other spinal pain.
