Physical therapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and may relieve pain. It can also help to improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level. The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed.
Physical therapy can help with recovery after some surgeries, injuries, or long-term health problems such as arthritis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Your physical therapy program may include manual therapy, stimulation, ultrasound, heat, cold, water, and electrical stimulation, and will almost always include exercise, including teaching you things you can do at home to speed your recovery.
