The Physical Therapy staff evaluate and treat patients with musculoskeletal, neurological, and developmental problems. Once referred to physical therapy, each patient is evaluated by a licensed physical therapist and a personalized treatment plan is developed. The continuation of this plan is closely monitored by the evaluating physical therapist along with a physical therapist assistant. Changes are made as needed to enhance the comfort and progress of patients.
Therapists utilize a wide variety of modalities and activities to assist in the return of each patient to their optimal function. Throughout the treatments, patients receive education on their injuries or disabilities and Home Exercise Programs are developed to accelerate the healing process and return to independence.
