Physical Therapy -> Strength


Physical therapists use strength training exercises to improve mobility, manage pain and chronic conditions, recovery from injury, and/or prevent future injury or chronic disease. A PT will work with the patient to develop a personalized plan to strengthen muscles, improve the cardiovascular system, control body weight, benefit mental health, encourage socialization, and reduce the risk of chronic disease.
