The Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation's Physical Therapy (CHCC PT) Department provides care in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Our team evaluates each patient and establishes a personalized treatment plan, which may encompass different activities and treatments such as therapeutic exercises, neuromuscular re-education, manual therapy, both mechanical and manual traction therapy, heat and cold therapy, electro therapy, ultrasound therapy, prosthetic and orthotic training, gait training, wound care, and self-care/management training.
The purpose of an established PT plan is to work towards each patient's specific goals, whether that be to improve function, minimize loss of function, or decrease risk of injury and disease.
All physical therapy rehabilitation services require a referral from a medical provider. If you feel you need physical therapy, please contact your primary care provider.
Situations that may require PT include, but are not limited to:
- Acute sprains and strains
- Back pain
- Brain injury
- Musculoskeletal injury
- Neurological dysfunction
- Sports Injury
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injury
- Total joint replacements
- Vestibular and balance problems
Frequency and duration of therapy
Many factors, including the diagnosis, pre-exisiting conditions, and lifestyle, impact how often you will need PT and for low long. Each session will typically last from 45 minutes to 1 hour.
What to Wear to Physical Therapy
Please wear something loose and comfortable that allows the therapist a clear view of the body part that is to be treated. For example, if you have knee pain then shorts would be best.
We are located between Radiology and the Operating Room.
