Inpatient Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy helps to restore function, improves mobility, relieves pain, and prevents or limits physical disabilities following injury or disease. Treatment often includes exercises that focus on improving strength, balance, coordination and endurance. We provide education on the safe use of assistive devices such as walkers, canes, and crutches to provide stability with ambulation and mobility.
