You have probably heard of the profession of physical therapy. Maybe you have had a conversation with a friend about how physical therapy helped get rid of his or her back pain, or you might know someone who needed physical therapy after an injury. You might even have been treated by a physical therapist yourself. But have you ever wondered about physical therapists; who they are and what they do? Many people are familiar with physical therapists’ work helping patients with orthopedic problems, such as low back pain or knee surgeries, to reduce pain and regain function. Others may be aware of the treatment that physical therapists provide to assist patients recovering from a stroke (e.g., assisting them with recovering use of their limbs and walking again.)
A Physical Therapist (PT) is a health care professional specializing in optimal movement and quality of life. Your PT will focus on optimizing your body’s movement in order to relieve pain, regain function, and get you back into the activities that make you happy. PTs are educated to treat patients of all ages in their recovery and/or prevention from a vast array of medical conditions. These medical conditions include, but are not limited to:

“When I first arrived my right knee was screaming and very swollen. That was 4 weeks ago. Walking, sleeping, stairs were impossible or not without difficulty. Coming to Trinity was the best possible decision I could have made. The staff is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I am now able to ride my bike, do work around the house, drive, climb stairs; all of which was difficult before coming to Trinity.” James Grossi
“Before my physician prescribed Trinity Rehab, I was experiencing headaches sporadically which also triggered neck and shoulder pain. My diagnosis was an acute muscle spasm. After my rehab program initiated, I immediately started feeling better, and the pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders have now ceased. The headaches are history! I have totally no discomfort, and I am extremely pleased with my progress! My thanks to the wonderful physical therapists and their assistants for all of their conscientious efforts.” Barbara Garrett
