What is Physical Therapy?

Why choose Paspa PT?

In addition, we are often allied with orthopedists, sports medicine, neurologists, rheumatologists, endocrinologists, podiatrists, primary care MDs, physiatrists, and gerontologists, among other health professionals. 

Doing so allows us to help you take a proactive approach to manage pain, avoid surgery, increase fitness, assist with surgery recovery, and improve your quality of life. As an orthopedic/sports medicine PT practice working with all orthopedic conditions, we work with surgical and non-surgical patients.

Is there a difference between a Physical Therapist and Massage Therapists and Chiropractors?

Yes, there is a great difference between a physical therapist, a massage therapist, and a chiropractor. PTs do much more than just massage and manipulation. They have a greater scope of practice than many other health practitioners.

Our movement experts first evaluate your needs in detail by taking into account your symptoms and the different contributing factors and implementing a customized treatment program to treat and address each specific need.

What happens during a PT evaluation?

The evaluation phase will allow us to get acquainted with your health history and have a physical therapist evaluate your posture, gait, balance, range of motion, and strength. Your physical therapist might also perform tests such as palpation to assess specific muscle groups, painful areas, soft tissue mobility, or facial mobility.

The information obtained during this assessment phase will allow your physical therapist to analyze your symptoms and understand why you might be in pain and how to initiate an individualized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.
