Why try personal training with a licensed physical therapist?

Physical therapists have in depth and extensive knowledge about the muscles, nerves and bones, typical development from birth to old age , normal and abnormal movement and the injury process. They have knowledge in how to prevent injuries before they happen, as well as rehabilitation techniques. Having a professional analyze your unique movement and giving you your own unique exercise plan, you can expect to be participating more and rehabilitating less! Physical therapists are also uniquely qualified to work with children due to their extensive knowledge of typical development.
