About Physical Therapy
Physical therapy focuses on the body’s ability to move, helping restore the physical functionality needed to perform everyday activities. Physical therapists are trained, licensed professionals who can diagnose physical abnormalities, help patients move easier, and promote continued physical health through patient education. They work with individuals experiencing challenges that stem from a variety of causes, such as:
- Neurological conditions
- Sports injuries
Physical therapy not only fosters comfortable movement but also helps improve one’s quality of life. Through exercises and therapeutic treatments, physical therapists help patients with a broad spectrum of challenges participate in the things they want and need to do daily.
The physical therapists at Thompson Healthcare & Sports Medicine assess the unique needs of each patient and develop a course of treatment that targets specific parts of the body. Our specialists evaluate posture, flexibility, muscle performance, joint motion, and other factors. Depending on the condition, the goal of physical therapy may be to:
- Alleviate pain
- Strengthen muscles
- Enhance mobility and range of motion
- Improve balance and coordination
After assessing physical and cognitive challenges, our specialists help patients find ways to overcome or effectively manage a variety of health issues. If an assistive device is needed, our specialists help each patient learn how to incorporate it into their everyday routine.
