Physical therapy is an essential element of patient care. Physical therapists are highly educated experts in the movements and functioning of the human body. The goal of a physical therapist is to promote patient mobility, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability.
The medical professionals who plan and execute rehabilitative programs designed to improve patient mobility and lessen pain are in high demand.
