Q: What can a physical therapist do?
After an injury, physical therapists at Premier Family Medical can use their skills to reduce pain and help a patient regain his or her normal range of motion, flexibility, and strength. Chronic conditions are also helped through the care of a physical therapist. The physical therapists at the office will work with patients to set up measurable goals and work with them throughout their recovery. They can also help patients following a stroke or heart attack as well. These patients will frequently need to relearn the basic physical aspects of day-to-day tasks and will need to build up their strength following the incident. As a part of recovery, the physical therapist will be a crucial part of the health care team. For more information, contact Premier Family Medical to set up a consultation.
