Physical therapists test and measure strength, range of motion, balance and coordination, posture, muscle performance, respiration and motor function; they use electrical stimulation, hot packs or cold compresses, and ultrasound to relieve pain and reduce swelling. They may also use traction or deep tissue massage to relieve pain. Therapists teach patients to use assistive and adaptive devices such as crutches, prostheses and wheelchairs. Some therapists specialize in areas such as pediatrics, geriatrics, orthopedics, sports medicine and neurology.
