Physical therapy is the area of health care that specializes in disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Specifically, physical therapy evaluates the functional interdependence of each part of the musculoskeletal system and utilizes a variety of treatment methods to restore full movement and function to any areas with a deficiency. The methods include exercise, massage, heat and cold, and electricity. For example, exercise works the muscle group, ice reduces the swelling of the muscles, and heat aids in flexibility. Recently, Yoga and Pilates have been incorporated into therapy plans. Without a doubt, physical therapy is an innovative field that is focused on healing the patient and restoring them to optimum health.
