Outpatient Physical Therapy

Outpatient physical therapy was developed to help patients with a wide variety of rehabilitative needs. Each patient receives a comprehensive initial assessment. Dedicated staff works with each patient to develop a specific plan of care. This includes helping patients return to work, setting guidelines for recreational activities and fully maximizing a patient's potential to improve his/her functional capacity.
