What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapists, often referred to as PTs, work with individuals of all ages, from birth to geriatric patients, with medical problems or health-related conditions, illnesses, injuries or imbalances which limit their ability to move and perform functional activities. Physical therapists are movement and exercise specialists and are considered experts in the science of movement disorders. PTs examine individuals and develop treatment plans to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability. Physical therapists also work to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs.

At Shoreline Physical Therapy,
we treat patients of all ages with a wide variety of diagnoses.  We see infants and toddlers with developmental delays or sensory integration disorder. Older children are seen in the clinic or in school. We help athletes of all ages get back to their sport. We treat injuries incurred in motor vehicle accidents, at work, or due to falls. We help people with fractures and sprains. We help people with neurological diagnoses to regain their function. People with chronic pain due to fibromyalgia or arthritis also benefit from our services.  The list goes on and on....

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapists, often referred to as OTs, help individuals to get back what they have lost and help them to return to their same level of functioning before their disability after suffering from any number of debilitating medical conditions. Through effective treatment, individuals can improve their ability to perform tasks in their everyday lives, while being encouraged to maintain an independent life. Therapists also work to provide guidance and support for both family members and caregivers, such as recommendations for adaptive equipment and usage, complete performance assessments with the client, and help to give a comprehensive home and job site evaluation with the client's best interest in mind. These practitioners also work with children from birth through geriatric patients.

Occupational therapy promotes increased my awareness of those everyday tasks that require a certain level of precision and skill that we sometimes take for granted, such as brushing our teeth, tying shoes, and combing our hair.
