Physical Therapist do more than just prescribe exercises. They spend extra time teaching individuals the proper exercise technique, assessing for muscle imbalances, and compensation patterns, educating individuals on proper posture and body mechanics for daily activities and we instruct clients on the most effective personalized home exercise programs.
Physical therapists are health care providers who are experts in the examination and treatment of problems that affect people’s abilities to move and function. These abilities are driven by four major systems in the body – musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular/pulmonary, and integumentary – and physical therapists, PTs, are educated and experienced to manage all four. For instance, PTs help patients with orthopedic problems such as knee injuries to reduce pain and regain function. They provide treatment so that patients recovering from a stroke can learn to use their limbs again.
