Physical therapists are experts in movement and function. The primary goal of physical therapy is to treat people who have suffered injury or illness and maximize function. Physical therapists do this by developing specialized treatment programs to help restore mobility, reduce pain, increase fitness levels, prevent injury, or slow the progression of irreversible medical conditions.
To achieve these goals physical therapists employ the following interventions:
- Therapeutic Exercise – both on land and in water
- Aquatic Therapy
- Manual Treatment Methods including joint mobilization and elements of massage/soft tissue mobilization
- Physical Agents: heat, cold, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, infrared and traction
- Patient Education including postural advice, ergonomic instruction, home exercise, energy conservation, fitness information and more…

Q: How often should I refer a patient, i.e. what frequency and duration is appropriate for therapy care?
A: In general, most patients with musculoskeletal conditions attend physical therapy 2-3x/week on non-consecutive days. Length or duration of care is dependent on many variables including patient age, diagnosis, fitness level, severity of injury, just to name a few. On average, patients are seen in therapy for 3-6 weeks. If you are unsure of the most appropriate frequency and duration, the physical therapist can make a recommendation based on their evaluation findings. You can also put an initial frequency and duration on the prescription and if the therapist feels more or less therapy is indicated this can be communicated via physical therapy progress reports faxed to your office.
Q: What should I write on the physical therapy prescription?
A: Most physicians list the diagnosis as well as the statement “evaluate and treat.” This phrase lets the physical therapist know that the physician is requesting that they evaluate and treat the patient for the condition listed on the prescription. The therapist will complete this evaluation and fax over a copy of the report to the physician office.
