Physical therapists are an important member of your healthcare team. They consult with physicians, surgeons and other specialists to help people who have injuries or illnesses to alleviate pain, restore mobility and function. Physical therapists provide care to people of all ages who have functional problems such as back and neck injuries, sprains, strains, and fractures, arthritis, amputations, stroke, injuries related to work, auto related injuries, sports injuries and other conditions.
Physical therapists are trained to use a variety of different techniques to care for their patients. These techniques include individualized exercise and stretching programs, manual therapy techniques and soft tissue mobilization, the use of heat/cold and other pain reducing modalities. Your physical therapist also may use other assistive devices to correct and facilitate normal mobility.
Your physical therapist is an educated medical professional that has completed advanced levels of education (master’s degree or doctoral degree) in order to become licensed to practice physical therapy in the State of Washington.
