Physical Therapy

Physical therapists help patients improve their use of bones, muscles, joints and nerves. Patients with post-operative complications from joint replacements and amputations are treated with attention to their specific needs. Physical therapy encourages patients through a variety of exercises that improve strength, balance, coordination and endurance:

  • Mobility: Assistance with strengthening to increase independence with getting in and out of bed, up to the chair, walking and wheelchair mobility
