Physical Therapy is the treatment of physical dysfunction or injury by the use of therapeutic exercise, manual treatment and application of modalities intended to restore normal level of function.
There are some misperceptions about just what physical therapy is. Some people think it’s only for the football player recovering from ACL surgery. Others think physical therapy is mainly for those who’ve suffered a serious debilitation, such as a stroke. The reality is that physical therapy has a simple, straightforward goal — to help a person improve or restore their physical function, helping them move better, and helping relieve physical pain.
A physical therapist prevents, minimizes, or eliminates impairments of body functions and structures, removes activity limitations, and participation restrictions. Their work runs through conditions involving all parts and functions of the body. That’s where the team at Pro Staff Institute shines — in getting our patients back to full function, whether after injury, surgery, or simply due to a chronic condition.
