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
