What Is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy (PT) is a healthcare specialty that focuses on the prevention, evaluation, rehabilitation, and treatment of physical dysfunction and/or injury. It helps with managing pain and improving mobility. Physical therapy can also be used in conjunction with other treatments to accelerate your healing process.


Highly trained physical therapists can help you recover quickly and in the safest way possible. In order to practice as a physical therapist, a doctor of physical therapy degree must be earned along with passing the state license exam. This ensures that you receive the best possible care.
