Physical therapy is a great way to correct injuries, reduce pain, and improve the overall balance of your body’s muscles and skeletal structure. Physical therapists can help patients improve mobility, function, and strength. Over time, physical therapy can improve your range of motion, reduce pain, and prevent reinjury from occurring.
