Physical Therapy

Physical therapy can make all the difference when you’re recovering from an injury or illness. The goal of rehabilitation is to minimize your pain and improve your independence in your daily life. Physical therapists can help you understand what has happened to your body after injury or illness, then develop a plan to correct those impairments.

At CGH Medical Center, our physical therapists are movement experts. Their education, clinical expertise, and advanced specializations provide them with the knowledge to identify, diagnose, and treat your movement problems.

Our physical therapy approach

At CGH Medical Center, we understand that physical therapy is personal. That’s why we create individualized plans tailored for your body and your health goals.

The physical therapists on our team will meet with you and discuss your injury or illness. Then, we’ll create a plan that blends health education, supervised clinic exercise, and at-home practice utilizing the most up to date evidence based practice.

Our highly trained physical therapists and support staff will be at your side to ensure your maximum recovery. They’ll work with you, cheer you on, and update your doctor on your progress.
