Physical Therapy

In Physical Therapy (PT), trained physical therapists evaluate and treat abnormal physical function related to an injury, disability, disease or condition. Physical therapy’s goal is to ease pain, help you move, and live better. 

Billings Clinic physical therapists work with your doctor and other health care professionals to guide your treatments. Working with a physical therapist can help you get back to full function in the area being treated faster. 

Our physical therapists can: 

  • Identify physical issues 

  • Restore physical function and mobility 

  • Maintain physical function 

  • Promote physical activity and proper function - you’ll feel better and you’ll be more likely to get back full function in the area being treated, and in most cases, faster than without the guidance of a PT
