October is National Physical Therapy Month, an annual opportunity to learn more about the unique benefits of physical therapy.

Physical therapists are licensed health providers specially trained to evaluate, diagnose and manage health conditions and movement problems in people of all ages and abilities. Physical therapists are movement experts. They help patients manage chronic pain and disease, improve strength, recover from injuries and reduce the risk of injury in the future. Additionally, physical therapy is a safe and effective alternative treatment to medication, such as opioids, for the management of chronic pain conditions.

At Hattiesburg Clinic, our expert team of physical therapists strive to provide patients every advantage in their pursuit of a healthier life.

“Physical therapists play a unique role in helping people overcome barriers to regular physical activity to benefit physical, mental and social health,” Clint Hudson, PT, DPT, SCS, with Hattiesburg Clinic Physical Rehabilitation – Tatum Park, said. “As with any other licensed health care provider, we each have the opportunity to specialize in our own particular skill set and area of practice, such as sports physical therapy, women’s health, neurology and geriatrics.”
