PHYSICAL THERAPY

Individuals may benefit from physical therapy when health problems make it hard to move around and
do everyday tasks. Physical Therapy (PT) helps improve physical function and fitness levels. The
goal of PT is to make daily tasks and activities easier to do. This may include walking and getting
in and out of bed. PT is also beneficial after surgery and can speed the recovery process. PT helps
regain flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and balance. Stretching, exercise, weight
lifting, massage, ice/heat applications, and other treatments are all part of a physical therapy
plan.
