What is physical therapy?
Physical therapy is a type of treatment you need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and relieves pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level.
Our physical therapists are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility – in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.
At AZOPT, we teach our patients how to prevent or manage their condition so that they will achieve long-term health benefits. We examine each individual and develop a plan, using proven treatment techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, we work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
