    After an injury or procedure, your main goal is to lose the pain and regain your strength and mobility. Our goal is to get you back to your quality of life.

    What is Physical Therapy?

    Physical therapy works to diagnose and manage movement dysfunction and works to enhance functional abilities. Physical therapy helps to restore, maintain and promote not only optimal physical function but optimal wellness, fitness and quality of life as it relates to movement and health. It helps to prevent the onset of symptoms and the progression of impairments, functional limitations and disabilities that may result from diseases, disorders, conditions or injuries.

    The Physical Therapy Team

    Physical Therapist

    A physical therapist (PT) is the leader in your rehabilitation process. The PT examines, evaluates and makes a prognosis of your physical state. We do this by:

    • looking at your history
    • conducting a system review
    • completing tests and measures
    • establishing diagnoses
    • establishing prognoses
    • creating a Plan of Care (this plans out your rehabilitation)

    All of this is done to create an environment that assists you in regaining function.

    Physical Therapist Assistant

    A physical therapist assistant (PTA) is the only individual who provides selected physical therapy interventions under the direction and supervision of the PT.

    The PTA follows the PT's Plan of Care and assists you in achieving your physical therapy goals.
