Goals of Physical Therapy

Pain management, sports injury recovery and prevention, managing age-related injuries and issues, and avoiding surgery are some of the goals of physical therapy. Dr. Lisa Corsa, Physical Therapy, Osteopathy and Athletic Training with Premier Therapy Solutions, says the patient usually comes in for pain management. "We usually assess, look at the entire body, treat it and figure out what is the root cause and then I attack the root cause."
