Physical Therapist and Patient

Illness, injury or aging – or a combination of all three – can impact our body’s ability to function the way it’s supposed to, and this can greatly impact our quality of life.

Physical therapists are health professionals with special expertise in physical conditioning and the movement sciences. They use this knowledge to reduce activity restrictions, and enable people of all ages to return to their work, community, and leisure activities.

At University of Miami Hospital, physical therapists treat a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Arthritic conditions
  • Cardiopulmonary and circulatory conditions
  • Integumentary conditions
  • Joint and soft tissue injuries
  • Neurologic conditions
  • Orthopedic conditions
  • Physical deconditioning
  • Sports injuries
  • Workplace injuries

Based on your specific condition, your therapist will determine a diagnosis (primary activity restriction toward which therapy will be directed) and a prognosis (optimal outcomes expected from therapy, with timelines). The therapist then establishes a plan of care that includes specific interventions designed to produce changes in your condition in order to achieve the desired outcomes.
