Whether the individual’s problem is a result of injury or disease, the role of a physical therapist is to help him or her return to maximal function. Physical therapy services assist the patient in learning how to restore function by training on gait, use of cane, walker, wheelchair, artificial limb, energy conservation, and return to work status.
