    What is Physical Therapy?
    Physical therapy is the application of principles and techniques aimed at restoring motion, increasing strength and maximizing function of a body part or system when these are lost due to injury, illness or disease. The goals of physical therapy interventions often include: increasing a range of motion, increasing strength, decreasing pain and re-establishing or integrating a lost movement function. Sometimes, however, the goals also include interventions aimed at stabilizing excessive joint movements or instabilities. These might result from injuries leading to ligamentous laxity, genetic pre-disposition, neurological disease, or in the case of the spine, age related changes.
