Physical therapy is fundamentally a hands-on, manual treatment approach that is universally accepted as an appropriate treatment option for many joint or muscle-related injuries. It is the job of a physical therapist to not only treat symptoms such as pain, but to determine what is causing the pain in the first place. As "movement experts", P.T.s are uniquely trained to assess posture and movement, and to then develop a treatment plan to assist in making the appropriate changes to the body to eliminate the painful dysfunction. By eliminating the "driver" of the symptoms, full recovery is a possibility. This "whole body" approach is what makes physical therapy an effective treatment option for all types of orthopedic problems.
