Physical Therapy

It’s frustrating – and sometimes downright painful – when injury or illness limits your day-to-day life. Suddenly the things you enjoy, like that daily walk around the neighborhood or a weekend pickup basketball game, become off limits. And once simple household tasks —like doing laundry, cooking or cleaning — can even seem impossible.

When ongoing pain is keeping you from living your best life, the physical therapists at Owensboro Health are here to help you rebuild your strength and stamina — working closely with you and your referring provider to get you where you want to be.

We start by spending the time getting to know you – your lifestyle, condition, symptoms, goals for treatment and what brought you in to see us. Then, we’ll create a plan that’s tailored just to you.

Physical Therapy Goals

Treatment plans typically include exercises, stretches and other activities that will help you:

  • Build confidence
  • Eliminate or reduce pain
  • Improve balance
  • Increase strength
  • Promote healing
  • Restore motion to the affected area
