Whether it’s little league or the Masters, participating in sports helps promote physically active lifestyles. In celebration of Physical Therapy Month, PVMC’s Physical Therapy Department is focusing on Sports Injury and Prevention education across one’s life span. Be on the lookout for sports injury treatment strategies and prevention techniques throughout the hospital and in the Physical Medicine Department this month by PVMC physical therapists.
What is a Physical Therapist?
Physical therapists’ education and expertise allow them to make a customized program for individuals rather than a “one size fits all” program. They can create a safe and appropriate program that addresses your personal needs and pre-existing conditions.
Physical therapists also significantly improve mobility to help you perform daily activities, provide an alternative to surgery, and, in many cases, physical therapists manage or eliminate pain without medication.
