If you have not experienced PT in the past this quick blog will help provide some basic information about physical therapy, or also known as ‘PT’.
PT starts with a very specific, customized treatment plan to help improve your body’s mobility. Our team of therapists will develop a detailed roadmap of Physical Therapy to help streamline activities like walking or going up stairs. If you need help with pain relief and/or restoring physical function our PT experts will help you get the specific care you need.
