What is Physical Therapy
Physical Therapy is the provision of services offered to our patients to develop, maintain, and restore maximum movement and functional abilities through interventions using physical agents, exercise, stretching and strengthening, manual technique(s), functional training and retraining. These services are focused on the prevention or elimination of physical limitations and/or restrictions resulting from injury, disease, or other causes.
Highly Trained Physical Therapy Staff
Our staff works diligently to provide individually designed and closely monitored therapeutic programs to restore flexibility, physical strength, functional ability, and independence with daily living activities. This is achieved using a multitude of evidenced based techniques, exercise programs, research based interventions, and a variety of equipment to treat our patients.
Typical Physical Therapy Patients
Physical Therapy is appropriate for anyone with a musculoskeletal disorder such as sprain/strains, joint injuries, and neck and back problems/pain. It is also ordered for rehabilitation after surgeries such as total joint replacements, soft tissue injury, or neurological problems. Therapy can offer treatment to those who have difficulty with balance and walking or coordination disorders. Also, Physical Therapy can offer treatment to those with sensory loss which can cause a host of challenges to assist in moving more efficiently and safely in daily living tasks. Activities of daily living and/or work related injuries also can be evaluated and subsequent treatment rendered by our staff of therapists to restore function and return to daily living, or modified as needed.
