Physical Therapy

Most people associate physical therapy with post-surgical care. While this is one application of it, there are actually a lot of reasons to turn to physical therapy.  In fact, receiving physical therapy before an issue becomes too serious can help you avoid surgery altogether.  At Barrett Hospital & HealthCare, our physical therapists can help you with everyday pain, persistent soreness, loss of mobility or the ability to function at a previous level.  

Manual therapy has been found to decrease edema, pain, spasms, and swelling, enhance health, wellness, and performance.  We focus on the following areas:

  • Orthopedic rehabilitation to restore movement and function in joints, bones, and muscles.  This includes neck, lower back or pelvic pain or dysfunction, any ailments affecting the extremities.

  • Osteoporosis or arthritis

  • Spinal stability and posture, core retraining

  • Neurological rehabilitation of diagnoses that effect the nervous system (Stroke, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Brain Injury, Congenital Defects, other various diagnoses, and deficits)

  • Persistent or chronic pain                                                     

  • Impaired balance and fall prevention

  • Dizziness or vertigo

  • Sports performance and recovery related to fracture, subluxation or dislocation, sprains and strains, other soft tissue injury

We offer additional specialized therapy:
