Outpatient Orthopedic Physical Therapy

A Personal Approach to Ortho PT

The need for outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation may arise from a traumatic or repetitive injury, an orthopedic disorder, or a chronic or congenital illness. A new injury or the progression of a recurring problem that causes limitations in mobility, can all benefit from physical therapy.

Physical therapy services are provided in dedicated outpatient therapy suites outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment. In addition, all outpatients have access to specialized services within the physical rehabilitation hospital, such as Aquatic Therapy, the Prosthetic Orthotic and Wellness Center, and the Center for Rehabilitation Technology, which may complement their therapeutic program.

  • Back/neck injuries
