What Is the Role of a Physical Therapist?
Physical therapy is a form of rehabilitation that involves individualized sessions incorporating exercises, neuromuscular reeducation and manual techniques to increase strength, restore range of motion, and relieve pain. Most people can benefit from physical therapy. Those who might find physical therapy most useful include post-operative patients, athletes of all ages and abilities recovering from sports-related injuries, desk workers with poor postural deficits and elderly patients dealing with chronic issues, just to name a few.
Some of the many conditions physical therapy can help improve include:
- Joint pain
- Sports-related injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Post-operative rehabilitation
- Gait training and running analysis
- Headaches and neck pain
- Spinal conditions

The personal attention and care he gives to his patients is unmatched in the field. He takes your concerns seriously and actually LISTENS to them unlike many other medical professionals.- Alex G.
She goes above and beyond for her clients and I leave every session feeling a million times better and well equipped to continue the improvements via a customized treatment plan. Alexis is such a warm, friendly and helpful person, I can’t recommend h- Eleanor D.
