Physical Therapy Department
“Let us help you to restore your mobility.”
Physical Therapists are movement specialists and experts in musculoskeletal dysfunctions. A thorough assessment,
and evaluation of other contributing factors, assists the therapists in determining a treatment plan. This allows our
therapists to formulate individualized rehab for each patient in order to treat acute and chronic orthopedic
conditions with a wide array of manual techniques to reduce pain, improve range of motion and thereby return
the patient to optimal levels of function. The appropriate use of manual therapy techniques, a properly dosed
intervention program, and teamwork by the providers can assist our patients to get their life in motion. Physical
therapy is here to assist you in your return to employment, hobbies and enjoying life to the fullest.

be covered. Your primary care provider or specialist may also refer you to therapy.
