What Physical Therapists Do

Physical Therapists have the rewarding opportunity to make a positive difference in the quality of people's lives. Their work involves extensive contact with people - with both patients and other health care professionals.

For people with health problems, the physical therapist assists in the recovery process - making them stronger, relieving their pain, and helping them to regain use of an affected limb or to relearn activities of daily living.

Another role of the physical therapist is keeping people well and safe from injury. PT's do this by teaching people the importance of fitness and showing them how to avoid injuries, at work or at play.

Physical therapy promotes optimal physical performance and enables health-conscious people to increase their overall fitness level and muscular strength and endurance.
