What is physical therapy?

Your doctor or surgeon might prescribe physical therapy to you if you’ve had a serious injury, surgery, or illness that has affected your ability to do daily tasks.

Physical therapy (also known as and shortened to “PT”) is a treatment method with the aim of easing pain and helping those treated to move, function, and live a higher quality of life.

What does a physical therapist do?

Typically during the first session, your PT will conduct a physical assessment of your shortcomings and needs. They’ll ask a question about the different levels of pain you experience when performing daily activities, other symptoms, how well you’re sleeping, and about your medical history.

  • Pain relief
  • Movement or ability improvement
