Physical therapy is used to improve a patient’s physical functions through physical examination, diagnosis, prognosis, physical intervention, rehabilitation, and patient education. It is practiced by physical therapists (known as physiotherapists in many countries).

Happily married, Dr. Brito and his wife, Grace, have two beautiful daughters together. He is an avid soccer player, spending his weekends on the field. These activities serve as a great source of entertainment and firsthand knowledge of the injuries he treats every day in his practice.
