A physical therapist can help prevent and manage a condition so that people can achieve long-term health benefits.
For instance, a study of 1,435 NCAA Division 1 female soccer players demonstrated that those who participated in a physical therapy program had an overall ACL injury rate 41 percent lower than those who did only a regular warm-up prior to practice. (American Journal of Sports Medicine August, 2008)
Because physical therapists receive specialized education in a variety of sciences – physics, human anatomy, kinesiology (human movement), to name a few – they understand how the body works and how to get people moving again. They know how to manage all four of the body's major systems – musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular/pulmonary, and integumentary (skin) – to restore and maximize mobility.
Whether someone is living with diabetes or recovering from a stroke, a fall, or a sports injury, a physical therapist is a trusted health care professional who will work closely with them to evaluate the condition and develop an effective, personalized plan of care. A physical therapist can help achieve long-term results for many conditions that limit ability to move.
