Physical Therapy is another type of rehabilitative services which preserves, enhances or restores movement or physical function. They are health care professionals with extensive clinical experience and education. In fact, Physical Therapists now graduate with Doctoral degrees. Both Physical Therapists (PT) and Physical Therapist Assistants (PTA) are required to pass State licensing examinations and maintain their license through clinical practice and continuing education.
Your Physical Therapist will examine you and develop a plan of care related to your diagnosis using a variety of treatment techniques to help you move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. They can also help prevent loss of mobility and motion by developing a fitness and wellness-oriented program tailored to your specific needs. At A Step Ahead Therapy, our Physical Therapists use evidence-based (proven by science) techniques and treatments to improve the body's ability to move and function in daily life. With their ingenuity and experience, they will show you how to get 'A Step Ahead'.
