The physical therapist is portrayed as a teacher, facilitator and coach who empowers his/her patient with knowledge, awareness and an understanding for each individual to help take responsibility during the treatment process. The assessment and management procedures are presented with a research basis as well as psychosocial, environmental and emotional considerations.
Physical therapists provide an excellent means of problem solving across different systems in your body (e.g. articular, neural, muscular, skeletal, myofascial, visceral or circulatory). A unique and effective aspect of a physical therapist’s assessment is that they place importance on attending to activities that are meaningful to the patient.
Physical Therapists are all about facilitating change!
