Physical Therapy is a treatment which some people may require after an injury, surgery, or long-term chronic health condition. Rehabilitation of major joints and muscle groups allow you to move better and relieve discomfort. It also helps improve and restore physical function and fitness. The goal of PT is to make daily tasks and activities easier to perform. Some treatment may include manual therapy, balance therapy, aquatic therapy, and soft tissue modalities.
Occupational Therapy is a custom method of therapy for people whose conditions limit their mobility and function, mainly of the upper extremities. The goal is to help people be able to participate in activities they need and want to do. Common OT modalities include helping people regain skills after injury or, rehabilitation post-surgical repair or tendon/ligament damage of the hand, wrist, elbow, forearm, and shoulder. Common treatment may include custom fabricated splinting.
