Customized, comprehensive, and compassionate physical therapy

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is designed to relieve pain, improve movement and function, and limit disabilities caused by injury or disease. CHI Memorial physical therapists specialize in the latest rehabilitative techniques and give patients individualized attention and tailored home exercise programs.

Personalized therapy

  • Aquatic Therapy is ideal for patients in extreme pain or with weight-bearing limitations and is used as a transition to land therapy.
  • Total Joint Recovery treats injuries from sprains to joint pain to total joint replacement surgeries. Therapists create individualized programs to restore function and mobility.
  • Balance Therapy helps patients experiencing dizziness, loss of balance, risk for falls, or recovering from injury to regain a normal response to balance issues.
  • Back and Neck Therapy provides individualized programs to reduce pain and increase functional ability in patients with muscle strains, herniated disks, or degenerative changes.
  • Speech Therapy treats speech, language, voice, cognition, and swallowing difficulties in a wide range of patients to improve communication and ease daily activities.
  • Occupational Therapy treats patients with functional deficits in activities of daily living due to upper extremity soft tissue injury, trauma, neurological insult, degenerative disease, or deconditioning following illness or surgery.
  • Pelvic Health Physical Therapy specialists provide services for male and female patients related to incontinence, pelvic pain issues, osteoporosis/osteopenia, peri-and postpartum care, and rehabilitation services for patients pre-and postoperative gynecologic, urologic, or abdominal surgery.
