Learn more about Physical Therapists

A physical therapist (PT) specializes in improving and restoring mobility, movement, strength, flexibility, balance and coordination in people of all ages. A PT evaluates and treats injuries and movement problems with exercises and other physical methods. PTs can often help people avoid surgery, as well as prevent and minimize pain, loss of function, and disability.

A PT typically: 

  • Reviews and evaluates a patient’s medical history and his or her mobility and physical functioning

  • Tests and measures balance, coordination, strength, range of motion, posture muscle performance, respiration, and motor function

  • Diagnoses movement dysfunctions

  • Works with patients to develop an individualized treatment plan based on their medical history, lifestyle, personal needs, and fitness and mobility goals

  • Prescribes exercises and other physical treatment techniques

  • Evaluates treatment progress and makes adjustments to the plan as needed

  • Educates patients about home techniques to optimize mobility, strength, and overall fitness

  • Consults and collaborates with a patient’s entire medical and rehabilitation team
