What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy focuses on restoring your mobility and helping you recover from injuries and other types of pain.

If you have an injury or some form of pain with specific movements, physical therapy can help restore your range of motion through a selective plan entailing education, heat and cold therapies, and guided exercises and movements, including stretching, electrical stimulation, and more.

  • You have a chronic health problem, such as arthritis
  • You want to improve your overall sense of wellness

You can expect an initial consultation to introduce you to your practitioner and to discuss your medical history and current lifestyle habits.
