About Physical Therapy
Physical therapy is based on movement and health science. Physical therapy examines human motion at the tissue, organ and system level and explains normal and dysfunctional motor behaviour. Physical therapy aims to promote and maintain health and well-being and prevent dysfunction. Physical therapy is administered to help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physical therapy treatment aims to restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Patients that may require physical therapy include: accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as low back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fracture (bone)s, head injuries, and cerebral palsy.
