Physical Therapy can help hundreds of conditions and has become a critical partner in the treatment of the whole patient.

Physical Therapy is Key in Outpatient Rehabilitation
Another important function of physical therapists are to help patients who have recently been ill or injured, suffered a stroke, heart attack or other debilitating health event regain their strength and functionality. Often times, after a hospital stay, a patient may not be quite ready to go home on their own, so they may instead be transferred to an outpatient rehabilitation facility for a period of time to recover a bit more before they are discharged home. A physical therapist can work with the patient on a daily basis to strengthen the weakened body part(s) and can develop a recovery plan to help the patient resume normal function.
