Physical Therapy

Regaining physical powers and returning to an active, comfortable life after an illness, injury or surgery should be a positive and invigorating experience. At MCMH our staff is skilled in diverse physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech pathology techniques.

When a patient is referred to the department, the first step in treatment is a consultation with your physician to establish a treatment plan consistent with your particular needs. We perform tests to evaluate your physical condition before starting your program of treatment. We are fully equipped with the latest resources for evaluation and treatment and use many tools to help you recover to your ultimate level of achievement. Included at our facility are a variety of exercise equipment, whirlpools, electrotherapy and a multi-joint exercise machine. Throughout your rehabilitation, we remain in touch with your physician, documenting your progress and maintaining the individualized care that is so important to your recovery.
