Outpatient Physical Therapy Services
Physical therapy is a rehabilitation discipline specializing in evaluating, diagnosing and treating physical and functional impairments in patients of all ages. The overall goal of physical therapy is to improve mobility, strength, and functional ability, so that patients can reach their highest functional levels and optimal quality of life.
The Physical therapist is a member of the interdisciplinary team who works in collaboration with the patient, family and other team members to create a rehabilitation program specific to the patients’ needs. Physical therapy programs provided in the inpatient and outpatient setting and are customized, outcomes-oriented and designed with the patient’s goals as the central focus. Physical therapy can be provided for impairments caused by a variety of conditions including, but not limited to: orthopedic conditions, neuromuscular/neurovascular disorders, stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, cardiac disorders and complex medical problems.
