What is physical therapy?
Physical therapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and to perform everyday tasks. It helps you move better and relieves pain. It also improves or restores your physical function and fitness level.
The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed, and improving work related activities.
Physical therapy helps with recovery after various surgeries such as joint replacements, arthroscopies, and spinal procedures.It is extremely effective for sports or dance injuries or long-term health problems such as arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or cardiac insufficiency, Parkinsonsim etc.
