The Benefits of Physical Therapy

When you have difficulty participating in physical activities, including daily living, due to pain or decreased function, you should visit your primary care provider, who will likely refer you to an orthopedic specialist. They will take your medical history, perform a physical exam, and order tests to understand your condition. Many musculoskeletal ailments can be improved with conservative treatment that includes physical therapy. Even when the condition requires surgery, a physical therapy routine often improves recovery to rebuild strength and range of motion.

What Is a Physical Therapist?

A physical therapist is a licensed healthcare provider who specializes in the body’s function and helps patients maximize their post-injury or post-surgical physical abilities. Many physical therapists are Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPT). DPT programs usually take three years to complete, including classroom work, lab study, and clinical experience. As with other doctoral programs, licensed physical therapists undergo a clinical residency or fellowship to advance their practical knowledge and often focus on specific practice areas.

Based on current evidence, physical therapists create treatment plans specific to an individual’s needs. They treat conditions and symptoms and offer preventative strategies using hands-on care and patient education to improve quality of life.

What is a Physical Therapist Assistant?

A Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) is licensed and works under the direction of a licensed physical therapist. A PTA assists patients by teaching the prescribed exercises, demonstrating the use of assistive devices such as walkers and crutches, and providing other treatments, including manual therapy, as the physical therapist recommends.

Your rehabilitation team will comprise Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants to help you return to your pre-injury and pre-surgery function.
