The Physical Therapist (PT) is a health care professional who diagnose and treat individuals who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities or make it unsafe to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. After an initial evaluation, the therapist develops a plan using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, prevent the loss of mobility and prevent disability.
- Exercises to help restore muscle function and range of motion to obtain maximum potential in attaining increased functional mobility (e.g. gait transfers, bed mobility)
- Rehabilitation after an orthopedic procedure to restore mobility and maintain joint integrity.
- Family and caregiver education with home exercise regimen and safety training.
- Recovery from and prevention of falls. It has been shown that falls are the leading reason for admission to skilled nursing facilities.

- Muscle stimulation using massage or a variety of other techniques and procedures such as ultrasound treatments.
