Physical therapists are the medical professionals who help us restore physical mobility and function in times of pain and discomfort. Whether in need of recovery from a debilitating injury or dealing with the side-effects of aging, clients turn to physical therapists to help relieve pain and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities.
