Physical Therapy is a profoundly important practice in caring for our Veterans. It serves as an alternative to surgery, prevents injury, increases mobility, reduces pain and restores independence. At VA, Physical Therapists develop unique and resourceful treatment plans for complex medical conditions. And beyond physical rehabilitation, our Physical Therapists develop wellness and fitness programs tailored to each Veteran’s personal needs. Through this emotionally rewarding practice, our patients and therapists form strong interpersonal levels of trust. Ultimately, our Physical Therapists help Veterans understand their injuries so they can get back to their everyday lives and enjoy long-term health and mobility benefits.

Our Physical Therapy providers (PT) specialize in examination, evaluation, diagnosis and intervention targeting impairments associated with mobility, strength, functional ability and quality of lifefor our Veterans. Choosing a quality therapy provider is a critical decision in order to reduce pain and improve mobility quickly and safely. Effective physical therapy services are successful in reducing recovery times, avoiding surgical intervention, reducing healthcare costs and preventing future injuries.

Collaboration with Occupational Therapists is common among our team to improve patient outcomes and better address the needs of the whole person.
