What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a health care specialty that involves evaluating, diagnosing, and treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system. The ultimate goal of physical therapy is to restore maximal functional independence to each individual patient. To promote recovery and achieve this goal, we believe in using a combination of:
- Soft Tissue Mobilization,
- Myofascial Release (Deep Tissue Massage), and
- Various Taping Techniques.
