You will find caring, skilled physical therapists with specialized training. Our physical therapists help patients to regain their strength and balance, prevent falls, increase range of motion, and decrease pain. Through therapeutic exercise programs, patients can increase their muscle function, coordination, endurance, and mobility.
What do Physical Therapists do?
Physical therapy treats the patient’s impairments. They try to improve the impairment itself by increasing mobility, alignment of bones or joins, or lessen pain. Primary goal is to get their patients back to motion with exercise, massages, or other techniques. We focus on preventing injury as to avoid surgery or long-term effects.
How both Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy overlap?
Both educate people about the healing process
Both educate people on how to prevent and avoid injury
Both play very important roles and specialize in their areas of expertise
Both assist people with improving their ability to perform daily activities through training and education
In some cases, patients may start PT and then progress to OT.
For example, someone that had a stroke could get PT to get muscle strength
and then later see OT for basic home improvement and practices: like bathing, dressing, eating, and walking.
