PHYSICAL THERAPY

 
Our physical therapy department is dedicated not only to treating the patient, but also to building a strong relationship with the physician to create a continuum of care, from initial Physical Therapy all the way through The Acceleration Program.

We offer physical therapy services at our six convenient locations: Montgomery, Fairfield, South Lebanon, Edgewood, Florence and Southgate; each location is staffed with physical therapists and physical therapy assistants. Our therapists work with patients to restore function and help them through the recovery process. They treat a variety of conditions in patients ranging from athletes who need to return to sports after an injury to patients recovering from surgery.

Our physical therapists are always striving to be on the cutting edge of new techniques and treatments and work directly with our physicians to achieve the best patient outcomes available. They continue their education by observing the physicians in the clinic and attending continuing education seminars each year. This helps them adjust their models of rehab to provide the best all-around care.
