Physical Therapy is a jazz fusion band from St. Louis, Missouri active in the 1990s. They produced two albums under the Sweatshop Records label, the first being the eponymous "Physical Therapy" (1992), and the second work being a theme album called "Casino" (1997).

The band used a variety of instruments and synthesizers and recorded digitally to maintain a high production standard. Priding the band on the use of real musicians, they boasted on their first album that no drum machines or music sequencers were used in its production."Physical Therapy", Physical Therapy. Sweatshop Records #512622, 1992.] Later, on "Casino", the band solicited guest help from a number of local musicians who contributed to over half the album."Casino", Physical Therapy. Sweatshop Records, 1997.] Interestingly, the second album did contain sparse sequencing. Both albums were recorded locally in St. Louis, with the first being produced at K Audio Inc., and the second at "The Chapel" studios. Terry Coleman, Brian White, Michael Fitzgerald and Ben Monroe produced each album, with Monroe doing engineering and sound mixing. Additionally, both albums contain writeups on the back of the CD tray that string together the track titles in a humorous paragraph related to the general theme of the album.

In 1998, their work was featured on the The Weather Channel as part of its Local on the 8's local forecast program.
