Physical therapy is a healthcare specialty involved with evaluating, diagnosing, and treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system. The ultimate goal of physical therapy is to restore maximal functional independence to each individual patient. To achieve this goal, physical treatments, such as exercise, heat, cold, electricity, and massage, are utilized. Our doctors and therapists work closely to make sure patients are receiving the therapy they need whether it is for strengthening and stability or to aid in recovery from a procedure, such as a partial or total joint replacement.
We believe that providing quality of service is paramount to a successful rehabilitation outcome. We accomplish this by refusing to cut corners and provide the following:
- You will work only with a licensed physical therapist or physical therapy assistant at each appointment.
- We believe in a team orientated approach. Our therapists will work closely with our orthopedic surgeons to ensure excellence in clinical outcomes.
- We limit our patients to approximately 12 in an 8-hour day to provide critical one-on-one time with each patient.
- We listen to each patient to determine their rehabilitation goals and develop a plan with you to maximize your results.
