|Physical Therapist |
A therapist who helps restore function for patients with problems related to movement, muscle strength, exercise, and joint function.
Professionally supervised physical therapy provides optimum recovery from disease, surgery or accident. The Med Center's Physical Therapy Department is a team of specially trained therapists, assistants and support staff. Patients may be recovering from a stroke, orthopedic surgery, a major accident or other illnesses. Physician's orders are followed in the use of exercise, functional training, hydrotherapy and many other therapeutic procedures to prevent or minimize disability, accelerate recovery and reduce the length of a patient's hospital stay. The goal of the Physical Therapy department is to help each patient reach his or her full healing potential. Inpatient and Outpatient services are offered. Occupational medicine is also offered through our WorkSTEPS Program.
