You may be referred to physical therapy because of a movement dysfunction associated with pain. Your difficulty with moving parts of your body very likely results in limitations with your daily activities, such as trouble walking, getting out of a chair or exercise. Physical therapists treat these movement dysfunctions and their associated pains and restore your body's ability to move in a normal manner. Your doctor referred you because he/she feels the physical therapist can help you to return to your activities, pain free.
