Physical therapy (sometimes abbreviated PT) is a branch of rehabilitative therapy used in the treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat/cold treatment, electrical stimulation, and exercise as an alternative to, or in conjunction with, drugs or surgery.
Physical therapy is a clinical health science. Physical therapists study medical science subjects, including anatomy, neuroscience, and physiology in order to obtain the health knowledge needed to prevent, diagnose, and treat patients with a wide range of physical ailments. Physical therapists use their knowledge to restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent permanent disabilities.
