Physical therapists are experts in movement and function, and treat patients with orthopedic problems such as lower back pain, knee injuries and so on. While physical therapists do work to correct injuries, a huge part of PT programs is helping prevent injury, loss of movement, and reduce the risk of overworked muscles. Many physical therapists work with athletes to ensure they are operating at peak performance. Education also plays a large role in physical therapy. Our goal is to provide patients with the resources they need to take care of themselves and prevent further or future injuries.
