Physical therapy is the healthcare profession that focuses on restoring movement and function to people who have been injured or are experiencing disease or disability. Physical therapists help people with conditions such as arthritis, back pain, brain injuries, cerebral palsy, car accident injuries, developmental disabilities, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, surgery, as well as many other conditions. They aid people in regaining the ability to walk, exercise, play sports, and participate in everyday life. Physical therapists evaluate patients to identify the best therapy plan for each individual and work closely with other healthcare providers to implement that plan.
Physical therapy can involve a wide variety of different exercises, each customized to meet the specific health needs of each patient. Physical therapy exercise is defined as movement that is prescribed to correct deficiencies, restore function to the musculoskeletal system, and/or maintain a healthy physical condition.

A physical therapy clinic is a specialized healthcare facility that promotes the health, restoration, and recovery of its patients by moving, strengthening and stretching their musculoskeletal systems, such as their muscles and joints. These clinics are staffed by physical therapists, who can diagnose, treat and educate patients with physical therapy. They use a variety of therapies like strengthening exercises, manual therapy and stretches to help patients recover faster. Most physical therapy clinics have a physical therapist, physical therapy assistants, and other health care professionals on staff.
Many people with injuries or illnesses see a physical therapist at some point in their rehabilitation. At a physical therapy clinic, patients can access physical therapy services on a regular basis and receive quality and consistent care from experienced professionals. It is important to note that physical therapy is not just for people with acute injuries or illnesses; people can visit a physical therapy clinic to maintain their physical health and improve their day-to-day functioning, as well as to prevent injuries and illnesses from impeding their mobility and range of motion. This could mean improving balance and mobility or developing the strength and endurance needed to perform daily tasks. Patients can expect to work on their goals in a therapy clinic setting, oftentimes with the help of other therapeutic modalities, such as exercise or occupational therapy.
