Typical patients eligible for physical therapy may include accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as lower-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries, and cerebral palsy.

Physical Therapists

Physical therapists (PT) diagnose and treat patients who have injuries, or other health-related conditions or illnesses that limit their abilities to move and perform normal activities. Physical therapists develop a plan for each individual and use treatment techniques to increase mobility, restore function, reduce pain, and prevent disability. PTs may also be involved in treatment programs to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness and wellness-oriented programs following injury, illness, or surgery.
