What Does a Physical Therapist Do?


Physical therapy (PT) is care that aims to ease pain and help you function, move, and live better. Your doctor may advise this treatment if you have an injury or sickness that limits your daily activities.

As the medical staffing for PTs continues to rise, it is vital to let people understand about this field and about what to expect their therapy session in general.

Patients need a physical therapist to help them relieve pain, improve movement, rehab after a stroke, adapt to an artificial limb, control bladder or bowels, manage a chronic illness and more.

At your first therapy session, your PT will examine and assess your needs. They’ll ask you questions about your pain or other symptoms, your ability to move or do everyday tasks, how well you sleep, and your medical history.

The objective is to determine a diagnosis of your condition, why you have the condition, including impairments that either caused or are a result of the condition then develop a plan of care to address each.
