Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Difference between a Sports Medicine Doctor and a PT?
The difference between a sports medicine doctor and a PT is that a sports medicine doctor can perform treatments such as surgery on patients.
On the other hand, a PT mainly focuses on strengthening and stretching exercises and the use of tools that can aid in orthopedic rehabilitation.
Is an Orthopedist the Same as PT?
No, an orthopedist is a medical doctor who went to medical school and can perform invasive treatments such as injections and surgery. Physical therapists on the other hand attend physical therapy school and receive a doctorate degree.
Here at Paspa PT, we perform non-invasive treatments such as manual work and exercise programs for anyone in need of rehabilitation or improvement with their mobility.
What Is the Difference between Sports Therapy and Physical Therapy?
The difference between sports therapy and physical therapy is small. Sports therapists can work with athletes and non-athletes alike but may have additional training in sports-related rehabilitation techniques such as blood flow restriction therapy (BFR) and Kinesio tape.
