Physical Therapy

Gateway to wellness

 

Physical Therapy is an ancillary department that serves out-patients and in-patients. Physical Therapists take a hands-on approach beginning with examination and then treatment of the immediate problem. Types of problems commonly treated in our physical therapy department include back pain, sports injuries, orthopedic surgeries, stroke victims and chronic conditions including arthritis, Parkinson's disease, and so on.

Our physical therapy department works with patients to increase muscle strength, endurance, and to decrease pain. Patients increase their movement independence by improving balance, flexibility, and coordination. Patients are taught how to care for themselves through proper exercises to gain strength and mobility, prevent recurring injury, and improve posture. 

 

One Registered Physical Therapist and two Certified Physical Therapist Assistants comprise the Physical Therapy Department.
