Why You Need a Physical Therapist on Your Healthcare Team

With health in sharp focus as we have returned to our more active lifestyles and summer activities, now may be a good time to look at the team of experts you have in place and see if there are any improvements you could make. You probably have a family doctor, dentist, and optometrist. Maybe you have some specialist physicians, a trainer, or a massage therapist. If a physical therapist isn't a part of your healthcare team, you're missing out on taking care of a big part of your health. To understand why you need a physical therapist, you need to understand what they do.

This month we will explore 4 ways Physical Therapists can help you:

  • do things

  • reduce pain

  • keep you healthy

  • live longer.

Physical Therapists Help You Do Things!

The American Physical Therapy Association defines PTs as "health care professionals who

diagnose and treat individuals who have medical problems or other health-related conditions

that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives." So physical

therapists help you do things that you have trouble with. That could be going for a hike, playing

with your kids, or getting through a day of work without pain.

If you would like to explore how PT can help you do things check out Owoc Physical Therapy Private Visit or a MELT class.
