Inpatient Physical Therapy

Inpatient physical therapy services are typically provided at bedside or on the unit. Some of the things we may work with you on are making certain you can get in and out of bed and climb stairs.

We help you achieve your highest level of functional independence prior to discharge home. When appropriate, we recommend home services or facilitate transfer to a rehabilitation setting or nursing home.
