Physical therapy is designed to re-educate muscles to work, to retrain other parts of the body to function for those parts which cannot, and to teach clients how to manage with their disability with or without equipment. This education process is performed mainly through exercises and through functional skill training. Our physical therapy program concentrates on mobility in bed, in a wheelchair, or when walking. This is accomplished by mobility training, strengthening and range of motion exercises, and balance and coordination exercises. With exercises, various modalities may be used, including electrical stimulation, ultrasound, biofeedback, heat and cold.
