WHAT is physical therapy?
It is the physical therapist's job to help patients get back to healthy living through improving and restoring mobility and movement. Physical therapy is often an option to avoid surgery, and therapists offer education and insight involving recovery so the patient fully understands the process of his or her rehabilitation.
