    If you ever suffer from an injury, chances are you will visit a physical therapist. A physical therapist is a healthcare professional that helps you recover movement and strength. For example, many sports players suffer from chronic pain in the muscles they use to play. They need help to manage the pain and balance recovery with playing their sports. If someone suffers a respiratory injury or disorder, they might need help recovering respiratory strength. A physical therapist can provide relief through therapy. They will target your neck, back, shoulders or hips. They might work on your knees or your arms. They will choose the program that works for you based on your needs. You might need aquatic therapy, in which you work toward pain relief in the water. During electrical therapy, the technician uses electricity to provide stimulation. In orthopedic therapy, the technician focuses on the muscular and skeletal systems to help you recover. Or for chronic pain, they might choose myofascial release. Physical therapy, often called physiotherapy, is usually performed at a clinic. You visit the medical clinic for a simple outpatient session. For more serious injuries, you might start these programs while you are still in the hospital, under the supervision of your doctor. After physical therapy, you may still need occupational therapy. An occupational therapist can help you learn to manage your daily tasks without causing extra pain or stress. If you need a physical or occupational therapist, you should talk to doctor and get a good reference for a reliable, reputable clinic.
