About the Profession

PTs examine, diagnose, and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the elderly, with health-related conditions that limit their ability to move and function daily. They help people understand their bodies so that they can manage health conditions and prevent mobility loss before it occurs by developing fitness and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
