About Physical Therapy

Physical therapists are evidence-based health care professionals who offer cost-effective treatment that:

  • Improves mobility and relieves pain
  • Reduces the need for surgery and prescription drugs
  • Allows patients to participate in a recovery plan designed for their specific needs

Physical therapists examine, evaluate, and treat patients who have conditions such as back pain, neck pain, burns, wounds, osteoporosis, developmental disabilities, carpal tunnel syndrome, and countless other conditions affecting an individual’s ability to move freely and without pain.

Physical therapists play vital roles in today’s health care environment and are recognized as essential providers of rehabilitation and habilitation, performance enhancement, and prevention and risk-reduction services. Physical therapists also play important roles both in developing standards for physical therapist practice and in developing health care policy to ensure availability, accessibility, and optimal provision of physical therapy.

Physical therapists are evidence-based health care professionals who offer cost-effective treatment that helps improve motion and relieve pain. Highly educated, physical therapists graduating today must have a graduate degree – either a master’s or a clinical doctorate from an accredited physical therapy program before taking the national licensure examination that allows them to practice.
