About Physical Therapy

ISL’s Physical Therapy Program is very interactive and highly specialized. Volunteers learn methods of restoring functional movement, perform orthopedic massage, and learn to assess and evaluate soft tissue manually, without the aid of x-ray and MRI testing, an excellent triage method for determining the site and extent of an injury when high tech equipment is not available.
