Got Questions About Physical Therapy?
Our Most Frequently Asked Questions
Physical therapists are experts in movement and function, so they do not confine their talents to only treating people who are ill. Physical therapists provide services to athletes of all levels and abilities to screen for potential problems and institute preventive exercise programs.
The cornerstones of physical therapy treatment are therapeutic exercise and functional training. In addition to "hands-on" care, Physical Therapists also educate patients to take care of themselves and perform specific activities independently. Depending on the particular needs, Physical Therapists may also "mobilize" a joint (that is, perform certain types of movements at the end of your range of motion) or massage a muscle to promote proper training and function.
With more than half of all Americans suffering from pain, whether acute or chronic, pain management is a widespread problem that commonly results in missing work, opioid use, and dependency. Physical therapists are experts at treating movement and neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. Since pain often accompanies a movement disorder, physical therapists can help correct the condition and relieve pain.
In most states, physical therapists cannot make a medical diagnosis. Medical diagnosis is provided by your primary care physician, who will then refer you to physical therapy when appropriate. While physical therapists are essential members of your medical team, physicians are typically the healthcare providers that will provide you with a medical diagnosis.
