Physical Therapy

During your rehabilitation, our team of skilled nurses and rehabilitation specialists will work to strengthen your lower body while improving both static and dynamic standing balance. We can help improve knee or hip range of motion after orthopedic surgery. In the case of pain or range of motion deficits, we can provide modality treatment of electrical stimulation and/or ultrasound to address pain and range of motion issues.

We can also provide training on manipulating stairs with or without arm rails, to help prepare our patients for discharge. We will also ensure our patients are trained in safety awareness with functional mobility and fall prevention techniques.

We will coordinate discharge plans with patient and family. All of our staff is educated on proper transfer techniques.

We are greatly invested in the safety of our patients, and as such provide safety awareness training with functional mobility and self-care skills.
