Physical Therapy

Good Shepherd’s team of physical therapists and physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors can help you regain your mobility, strength, balance and endurance as a result of illness or injury. We are experts in treating back and neck pain, knee pain, hip pain, multi trauma, work injuries, sports injuries and much more. Our goal is to help you regain your independence and increase your quality of life.

The Benefits of Physical Therapy

Physical therapy services at Good Shepherd are coordinated by a staff of expert physiatrists, physical therapists and physical therapy assistants who provide a team approach to patient care. After an initial consultation, a physical therapist will develop a treatment program designed to meet your goals.  You will then be cared for by one of our physical therapy experts, who will usher you through the entire treatment program and provide the most effective, consistent treatment possible.

When your rehabilitation program is complete, the team will work with you to help facilitate a successful transition from a rehabilitation setting to your home.  Our team will help you acquire and train you on the proper use of equipment to maximize your function and independence.  We will then provide a written home exercise program to help you maintain the function you gain in therapy.

What to Expect During Physical Therapy Treatment

A dedicated Good Shepherd physiatrist or physical therapist will work with you based on your specific goals.

  • Your physiatrist or physical therapist will develop a personalized treatment plan after assessing your current functional deficits, pain level and posture, as well as a thorough evaluation of your flexibility, strength, balance and endurance.
  • Our licensed therapists will provide hands-on therapy, exercise plans and strength training to help reduce pain and avoid reinjury.
  • In addition to scheduled therapy sessions, we give you a home exercise program. This program is based on your goals and your therapist will give you instruction on how many repetitions to do, and how often you need to do your exercise. 

PT Now/Direct Access

Depending on your condition, Good Shepherd’s PT Now program offers fast, convenient pain relief. No doctor referral is needed. After your initial evaluation, your Good Shepherd physical therapist may ask that you consult your primary care physician or specialist, depending on your needs. Don’t have a physician? We can help schedule an appointment with a Good Shepherd physician who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
