What is PT?

Physical Therapy (PT), also known as physiotherapy, is the treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery. It is a branch of rehabilitative healthcare that has the aim to relieve pain, help you move better or strengthen weakened muscles. Many people think PT is only for athletes, as it is a common treatment method to help athletes in their recovery from injuries or surgery. This however is not true, as many doctors refer people to physical therapists for preventive, restorative, or pain management purposes.

Physical Therapy is a great treatment and recovery method that can help patients avoid surgery, prescription drugs, and can improve a person’s overall physical abilities and fitness.

What is a Physical Therapist?

A Physical Therapist (also known as a physiotherapist) is a healthcare provider that evaluates and treats a variety of human body disorders. They typically receive referrals from doctors and other healthcare specialists.

While physical therapists help people of all ages with medical conditions, they themselves are not doctors. They cannot diagnose health conditions, prescribe medicine or perform surgeries. Click here to meet our team of dedicated physical therapists.

Is a Physical Therapist the same thing as an Occupational Therapist?

In short, no. While physical therapists and occupational therapists are both healthcare providers who help you move your body, they differ in the the type of therapy they perform. 

Physical therapy helps patients cope with pain, increase range of motion, improve endurance, and develop gross motor skills. Occupational therapy on the other hand, has an increased focus on how clients perform activities and roles that are most important to their daily lives. This includes assessing and treating physical, psychosocial, behavioral, cognitive, or sensory skills.

Is Physical Therapy right for me?

Physical Therapy is a treatment method that can help anyone, regardless of their current level of physical activity. If you have an illness or injury that limits your physical functional ability, physical therapy may be the right treatment for you.
