A physical therapist must first determine the patient's symptoms. This is done by interviewing and examining them to find any abnormalities that may be causing their symptoms or pain. Then, they will develop a treatment plan for what needs to be addressed during therapy sessions. A physical therapist's job can vary depending on which degree they are working with. PTs work closely with doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists, patients’ family members, and other health care professionals in order to best provide appropriate treatments for their patients. Physical therapy requires many different skills including knowledge of anatomy and physiology as well as how muscles function and body mechanics apply to an individual case. In the end, a physical therapist's job is to reduce pain, increase mobility and strength, as well as prevent further injuries from occurring. So, in order to achieve this, physical therapists use a variety of training aids and exercises that help their patients return to the lives they once had.

Before: I had a stress fracture in my L2 vertebrae with immense pain. I couldn’t perform in gymnastics like I used too. Now: I have no pain whatsoever and perform how I like. Backwalkovers with no pain! I never thought I’d have no pain again.

I am so grateful to you and your staff for the significant improvement I experienced under your supervision. When I first came to you, I was suffering extreme pain in both my shoulders and my hips, and now I can honestly say that I have regained a great deal of strength and flexibility in those areas. I owe it all to your professionalism, guidance, and expertise. Thank you so much for all your kindness.

I want to thank Paul Vidal for helping me control my vertigo! Because of your treatment I have been able to continue running and was thrilled to be able to run the Broad St. race with my daughter! I can’t thank you enough.
