Our inpatient therapy team has extensive training in recognizing and treating movement dysfunction in the acute care setting. If you are acutely ill, early physical therapy participation is imperative.

Our experienced physical therapists can tailor a plan of care specific for you and your loved ones to help regain the ability to walk, improve balance, learn safe techniques with movement, strengthen, or perform activities like you were able to before your illness or surgery.
The benefits of acute care physical therapy are immense. It can help lower the chance of long hospital or ICU stays, help with moving in bed, getting out of bed, getting up to a chair or wheelchair, and sitting up. Our therapists can recommend exercises with consideration to your medical condition or surgery history. Our highly trained physical therapists assists patients with gait training and helps instruct and use various assistive devices such as canes, crutches, or walkers to help walk safely.
