Centers for Disease Control Recommends Physical Therapy

If you know someone in pain that affects their lifestyle, Physical Therapy can help.  

  • The American Physical Therapy Association represents more than 100,000 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy nationwide.
  • Physical therapists improve physical function and treat pain through movement, rather than just masking the sensation of pain.
  •  Physical therapists can offer an alternative to opioids for long-term pain management and can provide services in conjunction with an opioid treatment plan, consistent with CDC guidelines.
