What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is aimed towards healing individuals to maintain and restore complete functionality or maximal movement of parts of the body or the body as a whole. This includes improving muscle strength, movement, muscle tone, hand-eye coordination, and dexterity. Services are applied where movement and function are hindered or threatened by environmental factors, age, disease, and other factors that may lead to impairment. Physical therapy treatments include all age groups. Physical therapists are additionally concerned with determining the treatments that are given to their patients. Since each individual may require different types of treatment, physical therapists analyze a patient's history and perform various physical examinations in order to arrive at a diagnosis. Once the diagnosis has been established, only then is when the treatment begins.
