Ask any physical therapist and they will be sure to tell you the human body is nothing short of amazing. It provides each person with an individual subjective experience of the world. It is the only possession that people are born with and that cannot be taken away. Within the array of different shapes and sizes bodies come in reside personalities and lives even more unique, all whom deserve to feel good and be happy. Everyday, physical therapists help patients with their ultimate possessions, working as the "mechanics" of a true "body shop."
