Physical therapists help patients suffering from injury or disease to restore function, relieve pain, improve mobility, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities. In addition, physical therapists promote patients' overall fitness and health.
Physical therapists work with health-care teams that include physicians, occupational therapists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses and psychologists.
Physical therapists test each patient and design customized programs of treatment. They may use massage to improve muscle condition; apply ice to reduce swelling or heat to relieve pain; and utilize therapeutic equipment, such as whirlpool baths, ultrasonic machines, and ultraviolet and infrared lamps. They teach patients how to do exercises with such equipment as pulleys and weights, stationary bicycles, elastic/rubber bands and parallel bars. They also teach patients and their families how to use and care for wheelchairs, braces, canes and crutches, and artificial limbs.
