“While the human body has the innate ability to heal itself, each patient’s healing journey is unique. It is my job as a physical therapist to discuss their limitations and their goals, assess the physical constraints creating the discrepancy between these, and then formulate a plan that will facilitate their recovery to achieve their desired results.”
