Physical Therapy

(to go back to Therapy Services main page) 

Physical Therapy is concerned with identifying and maximizing movement potential. Physical therapists are highly trained professionals who treat people of all ages who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Physical therapists will assist in techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability.

The major areas assisted by physical therapy are listed below.

Neurological/Neurosurgical: people with functional problems because of damage to the brain and spinal cord or nerves. Examples are those with stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, acute and chronic pain.

Musculoskeletal: people with injury of bones and other tissues, such as muscles, tendons or ligaments. Examples are those who have joint replacement, arthritis, burns and incontinence.

Cardiorespiratory: people who have problems with respiratory or circulatory system disease. Examples are those with chronic pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, acute pneumonia, diabetes, and cardiac disease.
