Physical Therapy is a health and rehabilitation profession designed to focus on improving the mobility and function of people who have illnesses or injuries that limit their mobility or function. Franciscan Health Rensselaer offers a wide range of services for patients of all ages.
Following a comprehensive evaluation by a Physical Therapist, a rehabilitation program is initiated. Our therapists work closely with clients and their physicians to help them return to achievable levels of health and independence.
Physical therapy involves the treatment of illnesses or injuries that result in the loss of strength, motion, endurance, balance, coordination and sensation. Conditions treated include athletic injuries, post-surgery rehabilitation, stroke, Bell's Palsy, wounds, whiplash-type injuries, work related injuries, post-mastectomy lymphedema, urinary incontinence and many other injuries and illnesses.
