Physical therapy includes activities like exercises, stretches and other types of treatments to help relieve symptoms and restore function to the musculoskeletal system.

The aim of physical therapy is to relieve or reduce pain and other symptoms so patients enjoy greater flexibility, strength and mobility, enabling them to return to their normal activities of daily living without pain or with minimal discomfort. Physical therapy can be used to help treat or manage a wide array of injuries, including sports injuries and car accident injuries an, injuries from slip and fall accidents, as well as illnesses and health conditions like arthritis, heart disease and fibromyalgia.
Physical therapy works by helping the body adjust and recover following illness or injury, enabling joints and other musculoskeletal structures to “ease” into normal activities so they don't become reinjured. In some cases, physical therapy may be used to help patients postpone or completely avoid certain types of surgery.
