Physical Therapy

Whatever your ache, pain, sprain or strain, our care team and board-certified physical therapists will help you get back to feeling your best.

Physical Therapy Goals

Each patient is evaluated and an individual plan of rehabilitation and physical therapy is developed to:

  • Eliminate or reduce pain
  • Restore maximum function after injury, illness or onset of disabling conditions
  • Decrease muscle imbalances to reduce strain at or around affected areas
  • Help you adapt to new life and medical circumstances
  • Increase the functional strength of your back, neck, limbs, joints and muscles to restore your lifestyle and your return to work

How to begin Physical Therapy

For insurance coverage, you will need a written referral for physical therapy from your doctor. You always have the right to choose where you receive your physical therapy services and we will strive to ensure your satisfaction.

Next, call us at one of the phone numbers listed with our locations to schedule an appointment. Have your insurance information available during this phone call.

Bring the following to your first appointment:

  • Written referral from your physician
  • Insurance card(s)
  • List of your medications
  • Legal guardian if the patient is a minor

Wear comfortable clothes and shoes to your appointment. We look forward to being your partner in physical rehabilitation.
