Physical therapy is a treatment for people who have pain and are searching for options other than medication or surgery. A physical therapist focuses on improving your ability to complete your life activities through movement - whether it is strengthening, stretching, or just mobilizing your joints to improve their position and function.
Physical therapists are required to complete graduate level education - either a Master's or Clinical Doctorate - to practice, and maintain high educational standards through on-going continuing education throughout their careers. This intensive educational background provides physical therapists with great clinical expertise. A physical therapist's goal in treatment is to examine the symptoms, diagnose the problem, and then treat conditions that impair daily function.
