My passion for this work comes from a personal belief that asking for help is an act of courage and a sign of strength rather than weakness. I understand how difficult it can be to reach out, especially around mental health issues. However, when you feel supported and well resourced, it allows you to open up to your fullest potential.
Know, however, that physical therapists can treat many other problems besides the ones listed. Be sure to speak with your doctor if you feel you may benefit from this treatment. When an injury or illness occurs that limits your ability to move about safely or normally, a referral to a physical therapist may be made. Physical therapists work closely with patients, doctors, and family members to ensure safe and rapid return to maximal function.
