Physical Therapy

Physical therapists (PTs) apply research and proven techniques to help patients get back in motion. They are trusted health care professionals with extensive academic education and clinical experience who examine, diagnose, and then prevent or treat conditions limiting the body's ability to move and function in daily life.

Physical therapist assistants (PTAs) are educated and licensed clinicians working under the direction and supervision of a physical therapist. PTAs work with physical therapists to treat patients of all ages who have medical problems or other conditions that limit their abilities to move forward with their lives.
