Physical therapy also means the treatment of any pain, disease, or injury by physical means.
A physical therapist seeks to identify and maximize quality of life and movement potential through prevention, intervention (treatment), promotion, habilitation, and rehabilitation.
- Habilitation means making somebody fit or capable of doing something.
- Rehabilitation means making somebody fit or capable of doing something they can no longer do properly or at all, but used to be able to - i.e. restoring an ability or abilities.
- Promotion means the process of enabling people to increase control over and improve their health.
