Physical therapy (PT) is functional rehabilitation. Therapies help relieve symptoms, such as shoulder pain, back inflammation, joint stiffness, and other causes of pain. PT offers many benefits, including increasing your body's flexibility, range of motion, strength, and endurance. Furthermore, you learn about biomechanics—how to protect your body. Physical therapy offers you the opportunity to improve your functional abilities and quality of life. Read more about physical therapy. Our doctors and your physical therapist work together to make sure your individualized PT program starts you at a comfortable level. As you progress, aspects of your therapy change to meet and challenge your improving levels of function. We want to make sure you acquire a level of physical ability and fitness to go about your activities of daily living, such as full- or part-time work.
