Staying Healthy: Advice From Physical Therapists

Physical Therapy, Staying Healthy and Wellness

Did you know physical therapy is fast becoming the profession of choice for staying healthy and well. Physical therapists for years have only been thought of as a profession to seek after injury or because your doctor recommended it. Now, most therapists are graduates of an accredited program with doctorate degrees specializing in health and wellness.

What this means for the consumer is that physical therapists should be your first choice when you are seeking out help with health related issues whether it is help designing an exercise routine, enhancing sport performance, rehabilitation following an injury such as back or neck pain or learning how to prevent injury.

Physical therapists are unique in that they can perform a thorough evaluation, arrive at a differential diagnosis, design a treatment plan tailored to your needs and help you with total body health and wellness that will keep you active and out of potential difficulties associated with lifestyle activities. Most states are now direct access states which means you can go directly to a physical therapist when a need arises. So when seeking out questions regarding health and wellness, try PT first!
