One of the first line health responders, physical therapists specialize in helping people to get moving. PTs examine each patient and develop a treatment plan to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. From newborn babies to the elderly, physical therapists have a variety of options for patient contact.
