Physical Therapy

When health conditions make it hard for you to move around and do everyday tasks, physical therapy can make your life easier.

Your Partner for Physical Therapy

Think of us as your partner for good health through physical therapy. We’re with you on your road to recovery, and we treat you with dignity, respect and compassion all along the way. Our goal is to help you regain as much function as possible—and to do it as quickly and safely as possible.

What To Expect

Our licensed therapists check your flexibility, strength, stamina, coordination and balance. Then, we develop a care plan that meets your personal needs. Physical therapy almost always includes exercises like:

  • Stretching
  • Strengthening muscles in the abdomen, back, neck and shoulders
  • Walking

Your physical therapist may teach you exercises you can do at home. Everything is designed to help you move better and keep fit. Physical therapy can also minimize pain and make daily tasks easier.
