Physical Therapy

Our Physical Therapy program continues to provide care within the inpatient and outpatient environment. We also provide physical therapy to patients in their homes through Home Health. Physical Therapists work with patients to help restore lost motion, strength, and functional mobility secondary to some form of injury, disease process or surgery. Physical therapists are trained in the use of therapeutic exercise, manual techniques and various treatment modalities to help achieve their treatment goals.

 In most cases, your insurance will cover physical and occupational therapy if you have a physician's prescription.  After you have visited with your physician, give us a call to schedule an appointment or answer any questions you may have.
