What do physical therapists do?

Physical therapists work with a patient’s doctor (or team of physicians), with the patient’s family, and other health care providers.

It’s a strategic recovery plan that takes into account personal circumstances:

  • The type of injury that’s been sustained
  • Treatment that’s been administered so far

  • The amount of recovery necessary

The intent is to meet demands of the patient’s life, work, and goals.
