UHS highlights benefits of Physical Therapy during national observance
October is National Physical Therapy Month; a time to highlight the importance of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation services.
Physical therapists are movement experts who team with physical therapist assistants to treat people of all ages and abilities. They are licensed healthcare providers who help patients avoid surgery and prescription drugs, maximize your mobility, manage pain and chronic conditions, and improve your physical function and fitness.
Some of the things your physical therapy team can help with:
- Before and after orthopedic surgeries such as joint replacement or sports injuries
- Women's health: pre and post partum, pelvic floor dysfunction, and incontinence
- Balance deficits
- Occupational and Hand Therapy
- Pediatrics: torticollis, neurological and physical developmental delays, and orthopedic injuries
