Physical & Occupational Therapy

Physical therapists at MHHC evaluate people with a wide variety of orthopedic and neurological conditions.

What Is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a form of rehabilitation that incorporates a variety of exercises and treatments to bring you back to optimal health. Physical therapy focuses on restoring mobility and function, and the prevention of further disability. Your ability to perform daily tasks at the highest level of function is important to us. Whether you find movement constrained due to injury, health problems, or recent surgery, physical therapy seeks to restore you to full functional capacity.

Our physical therapists work with individuals to prevent mobility loss by developing fitness and wellness programs for healthier and more active lifestyles. Physical therapists evaluate patients with a wide range of orthopedic and neurological conditions.

Our Patient Care Program

Step 1: Evaluation/Consultation

On your first visit to our clinic you will receive a full evaluation by a licensed physical therapist. This comprehensive visit will likely take 30-60 minutes and will identify your impairments (pain, muscle, weakness, muscle tightness, de-conditioning) that are affecting your overall function.

Step 2: Setting Goals

Once your intial evaluation is complete, goals will be discussed. Your goals may involve pain reduction,increase fitness, enhanced strength and flexibility, improved balance, return to work or sports and many others.

Step 3: Treatment

A specific treatment plan will consist of one on one patient to therapist interaction through the use of manual therapy techniques, localized modalities and supervised conditions programs. In addition, individualized programs will be developed, educating you on how to do independent home exercise to further the progress of your therapy.

Step 4: Education & Wellness

The primary goal is to teach you how to heal yourself and prevent future injury. You will be a part of the team and participate in the treatment course given. Wellness is the key to a future that is pain-free, giving you the freedom of movement and the ability to live life to its fullest.
