WHAT IS PHYSICAL THERAPY?
Physical therapy is a treatment approach that is designed to restore and enhance optimal physical function and mobility. Our therapists’ advanced training and specializations provide the needed skills to hone into the root cause and allow each treatment progression to be individualized. This conservative treatment approach often allows the patient to choose self-management of their diagnosis in lieu of surgery or other invasive approaches, and in some cases provides a helpful adjunct to these other procedures to provide maximum benefit.

INPATIENT VS OUTPATIENT
Inpatient rehabilitation generally refers to physician and therapy services you receive during a stay in a hospital. Outpatient rehabilitation refers to the services you receive when you are not admitted to the hospital, such as physician services and physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Outpatient physical therapy services mean the physical therapy services provided by public health agencies, service providers, and clinic rehabilitation agencies to outpatients. It provides evaluation and treatment of numerous physical conditions for all age groups.
