How physical therapy helps

The trained PTs at Ballad Health understand how the body works. They use that knowledge to help you heal and improve your symptoms. Your doctor may tell you to get physical therapy for an injury or condition that causes pain or makes it hard to do everyday activities. After surgery, physical therapy can get you back on your feet more quickly.
