It All Starts in the foot

Physical Therapy
Physical Therapy is that part of medicine which is involved in the prevention, assessment, management and rehabilitation of movement dysfunction. It strives to restore functional abilities to individuals who are either permanently or temporarily disabled by illness, disease, trauma, or congenital abnormalities.
This is accomplished by decreasing the pain and swelling in an area, and by increasing the range of motion in or at a body part. In podiatry such conditions as Heel Spurs, Bursitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Bunions, Corns and Calluses are treated with Physical Therapy on a regular basis.
Such modalities as hot packs, massage, electrical stimulation, ultra sound paraffin baths, and diathermy are used by the foot doctor to relieve pain and swelling; and to increase range of motion.
