Physical therapy helps patients of all ages reduce pain and improve or restore mobility — in many cases without surgery. It often reduces the need for long-term use of prescription medications, helping to avoid their negative side effects.
Physical therapy includes treatment and services in the following areas:
Manual therapy such as Graston Technique, strain/counter-strain and others
Musculoskeletal dysfunction such as lower back pain or neck pain
Neurological dysfunction such as MS and Parkinson's
Occupational health including ergonomic recommendations, jobsite assessments and functional capacity evaluations
