Physical Therapy is the treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular problems that affect
one's abilities to move and function as well as they can in their daily lives. Physical
Therapy includes alleviating impairment and functional limitation by designing, implementing,
and modifying therapeutic interventions. It also includes preventing injury, impairment,
functional limitation and disability, including the promotion and maintenance of fitness,
health, and quality of life in people of all ages. Physical Therapy also provides services to
athletes at all levels by screening for potential problems and instituting preventive exercise programs.
Because Physical Therapists are required to understand a vast array of problems that can affect
movement, function, and health, all current physical therapist education programs
graduate students at a master's degree level, with many schools offering a clinical doctorate
in physical therapy. After passing a board exam, a Physical Therapist is licensed in the state
in which they practice.
Occupational Therapy is an applied science and health profession that provides skilled treatment to help
individuals develop, regain or maintain the skills necessary to participate in all facets of their lives.
OT helps restore the highest possible level of independence to individuals who are limited by a physical
injury or illness, a dysfunctional condition, a cognitive impairment, a psychosocial
dysfunction, a mental illness, a developmental or environmental condition. OT gives
people the "skills for the job of living" necessary for leading meaningful and satisfying lives.
Occupational Therapists possess a Bachelor of Science degree in occupational therapy, but most
recently all programs have changed to a Master's or Doctoral degree. Graduates must pass a
national exam and possess a license within their state.
Direct Access is your opportunity to be evaluated by a licensed physical therapist without requiring you
to first be seen by your physician and obtaining a prescription. This program was first approved in
Pennsylvania in 2002, and all of the physical therapists employed by Penn-Ohio Rehabilitation
have their PA Direct Access license.
