People from all age groups, from newborns to seniors, have the need to move and function. Physical therapists are able to work with everyone, at any point during their life. A physical therapist is an expert in the way a person’s body works and moves. They promote wellness, healthy lifestyles, and also teach people ways to prevent injuries and loss of movement.
Physical therapists assist people to make environmental adaptations which enable people to function independently. They work with many different kinds of people, from adults who experience sciatica or other types of ‘after-effects’ from an auto accident, to infants who have been born with musculoskeletal birth defects. Physical therapists are all college graduates and must have passed a state licensing examination.
At Integrated Health and Injury, our physical therapists will work with people to help them meet the challenges they face related to an illness or injury. They will work with the person’s doctor and other members of the person’s health care team to design a therapy program that focuses on meeting the person’s recovery goals.
