Physical Therapy

Whether you are recovering from a serious incident, experiencing pain or suffering from a nagging problem that is keeping you from functioning to your full capacity, physical therapy can play an important role in your recovery. Our therapists are highly trained, caring professionals who will create a program designed for your individual needs.

Our goal is to help you function independently by giving you more mobility and better movement, while also finding ways to reduce pain. We have a state-of-the-art facility that includes swim exercise, whirlpool, several hydrotherapy machines and a strength conditioning room. Our private treatment rooms allow for your comfort during evaluation and treatment. We also have home health therapy professionals who can come to your home to provide treatment.

Does insurance cover physical therapy?
