TruRehab physical therapists strive to maximize patient independence. When you or a loved one has become incapacitated to any degree, it’s critical to receive physical therapy from an individual with the compassion and expertise to help get things back on track. TruRehab prides itself on its therapists’ abilities to assist patients in recovering maximum mobility and productivity.
Typically, physical therapy revolves around treatment of the larger muscles of the body. Through a customized treatment program a TruRehab therapist will increase a patient’s ability to function in daily life activities, such as getting in and out of a vehicle, going up and down stairs, or walking with or without the assistance of equipment. When necessary, our therapists also will recommend necessary adaptive equipment to assist with balance and endurance, facilitate muscle re-education, and provide family and caregiver training. The initial evaluation completed by a physical therapist can include: assessment of posture, gait, range of motion, strength, joint mobility, muscle strength, cardiovascular function, reflexes and functional skills.
