WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A PHYSICAL THERAPIST

THE OPTIMAL COMBINATION OF TREATMENTS
Blending science with inspiration, your physical therapist will teach you how to prevent or manage a health condition and help motivate you during your treatment so you can function optimally. Your physical therapist will work with you to help you understand your body so you will achieve long-term health benefits.
 
A PERSONAL WELLNESS PLAN TAILORED FOR YOU

Your physical therapist will examine you and develop a plan of care using a variety of treatment techniques that help you move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. Your physical therapist can also help you prevent loss of mobility and motion by developing a fitness and wellness-oriented program tailored to your specific needs. Your physical therapist may choose to team with a physical therapist assistant (PTA), an educated and licensed clinician working under the direction and supervision of the physical therapist, for components of your care.

YOUR PARTNERS IN HEALTH
 
Physical therapists and PTAs are your partners throughout your journey to restoring and maintaining motion so that you can function at your personal best.

ABOUT PHYSICAL THERAPISTS

INTENSIVE EDUCATION AND CLINICAL EXPERTISE
Physical therapists apply research and proven techniques to help people get back in motion. All physical therapists are required to receive a graduate degree - either a master's degree or a clinical doctorate - from an accredited physical therapist program before taking the national licensure examination that allows them to practice. State licensure is required in each state in which a physical therapist practices. They are trusted health care professionals with extensive clinical experience who examine, diagnose, and then prevent or treat conditions that limit to body's ability to move and function in daily life.

More and more physical therapists are now graduating with a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. More than 92% of the 210 accredited academic institutions nationwide offering professional physical therapist education programs now offer the DPT degree - and more than 75% of all 2008 PT graduates hold a DPT degree.
