Physical Therapy is the evaluation and treatment of physical disabilities designed to improve strength, range of motion and functional ability. From the initial evaluation through recovery, each patient has a highly skilled therapist who has a common goal: to provide relief of symptoms and restoration of function. The evaluation may include a series of tests to determine range of motion, muscle strength, postural alignment, abnormalities in walking pattern, body mechanics or quality of movement. After the evaluation is complete, your therapist will recommend a plan of care and specialized treatment program for each individual patient. Physical Therapy services are available under the direction of Elliott Weiner, Mark Smearman and Ken Miller. Together they have over 80 years’ experience.
