-What is Physical Therapy?-

Physical therapists work with people with a variety of disabilities and their families or caregivers.

Physical therapy is a health profession that conducts prevention, assessment, identification and treatment through using physical agents, exercise and manual skills to optimize clients’ participation.

The physical agents included sounds (ultrasonic), light (infrared, ultraviolet), water (hydrotherapy), electricity (electrotherapy), cold (ice compress), and heat (hot pack).

In addition to post-injury intervention, the prevention of injury is also an important field for PT to educate populations to take care of their health.
