Physical therapy (PT) is the practice of curing and treating physical injuries by physical activity. Many Lakeland physical therapy centers use various types of equipment and procedures as a means of physical therapy. There are two different types of physical therapy, active and passive. Active physical therapy is where the patient endures a series of physical exercises targeted towards rehabilitating their injury. Passive physical therapy is when the patient has certain modalities such as stretching performed that help treat their injury.
