Physical Therapy

Physical therapists are experts in the way the human body moves. They use a variety of techniques to promote movement, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. They help prevent loss of mobility by developing fitness and wellness oriented programs to help people achieve a healthier and more active lifestyle. Physical therapists apply research and proven techniques to help people get back in motion. They are required to receive a graduate degree from an accredited physical therapist program before taking the national licensure examination that allows them to practice. They are licensed by the Board of Education of the State and may also hold specific specialty certifications from the American Physical Therapy Association or other institutions.
