Physical therapists are professionals who are licensed and work with patients that have disabilities, various impairments, or limitations in their overall bodily physical function.

These can be the result of disease, injury, or pathological processes. Physical therapists will examine, then evaluate, help diagnose, and develop treatment plans, and provide a  prognosis for each individual patient.

Through exercise, mobilization, a lot of manipulation, heat, cold, and some electrical stimulation, physical therapists will work to help people restore function, improve their mobility, with the ideal situation of returning them to normal.

Physical therapists examine the strength, balance, the range of motion, their co-ordination, endurance, and posture of each patient. After this examination, the physical therapist will develop a treatment plan specifically for the individual patient.

Rehabilitation often involves very specific exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles and at the same time improve posture, their balance, and endurance. Some techniques including heat, cold, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation. Traction machines and massage are also two very valuable techniques for improving mobility and getting rid of pain. To help the patient feel independent, crutches, canes, and walkers are used.

During rehabilitation they will document their progress, re-evaluate, and modify treatment strategies to increase their success. They work as a team with physicians, speech pathologists, occupational therapists and also recreational therapists. Their goal is to reach maximal functional independence for the patient.
