Physical Therapists provide services to help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physical Therapists engage in examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention in an effort to maximize patient outcomes.
