Physical Therapy

Agility Physical Therapy recognizes that every patient and injury is unique.  We use a combination of highly trained therapists and innovative evidence based practice to come up with the best treatment plan.  The therapist spends the first visit also known as the evaluation, understanding your injury with a series of questions and hands on techniques to set up a treatment plan.  The therapist will teach you about your condition and explain to you what to expect in the recovery process.

 Subsequent treatments sessions will work on fixing the injuries, movement disorders, and pain that brought you in the door in the first place.  The therapist will utilize hands on techniques to stretch and mobilize stiff, misaligned, and restricted areas of your body. Once mobility is improved, then exercises are used to improve strength, balance, and function. Injured athletes looking to return to sports do sports specific training under the supervision of Physical Therapist.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is the evaluation and treatment of injuries, pain, movement disorders, and much more within state guidelines, goals, and evidence based practice.  The evaluation is used as part of an interview process to find out your history and cause of pain/injury, establishing goals, and testing and examining your condition to set up the best treatment plan for you.  This involves exercises as well as education to help the recovery process and prevent set backs.

 Who are Physical Therapists?

Physical therapists (PTs) are specialists in restoring movement.  PTs receive intensive education in anatomy, physiology, pathology and rehabilitation. It is among the fastest growing professions because of the value PTs provide for our increasingly active society. All PTs are graduates of accredited university programs and licensed by the state in which they work.
