Physical therapy helps develop, maintain, and restore maximum movement and functional ability to a body. It involves a process where movement potential is assessed and goals are agreed upon, using knowledge and skills unique to physical therapists.
Physical therapists utilize an individual's history and physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish a management plan to maximize performance and movement potential within the spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, and rehabilitation.
