By adding a Physical Therapy regimen to your treatment plan, even the most painful injuries can heal faster and produce the best long-term results. Our physical therapists assist in restoring a wide range of impairments through therapeutic exercises and functional and walking training to enable our residents to reach their highest level of physical independence and mobility. Physical Therapy helps increase your strength and stamina through a series of exercises, examination, diagnosis and physical intervention.
