Physical therapy (PT), also known as physiotherapy, is one of the allied health professions that, by using evidence-based kinesiology, electrotherapy, shockwave modality, exercise prescription, joint mobilization, and health education, treats conditions such as chronic or acute pain, soft tissue injuries, cartilage damage, arthritis, gait disorders, and physical impairments typically of musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, neurological and endocrinological origins.
Physical therapy is used to improve a patient's physical functions through physical examination, diagnosis, prognosis, physical intervention, rehabilitation, and patient education.
Physical therapy has become a crucial part of achieving optimum health and wellness for those suffering from a physical condition that limits their ability to function normally in their daily lives.
If you do not want to undergo surgery or you simply want to be treated without too much medication, you can opt for Physical Therapy. Nowadays, there are so many new PT techniques and types of equipment that can aide an ailing person and help recover.
