A physical therapy program can be a key part of your recovery from an illness or injury. But the strides you'll make in therapy are deeply dependent on the skills and expertise of the physical therapists who work with you—and the ability of that program to help you reach your goals. You'll need expert care in order to get the best results.
At Berger Health System, we can provide you with intense physical therapy programs built around your needs and your goals. And your care will be delivered by a coordinated and trained team that is dedicated to delivering excellent care to each and every patient.
Matching you to the right physical therapist
All of our physical therapists are trained and licensed. But some of our team members have special training in specific areas within physical therapy. For example, we have licensed athletic trainers who can perform sports medicine tasks such as:
- Injury prevention education.
- Sports assessments.
- Emergency care for sports injuries.
- Treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries.
When you come to Berger for care, we will match you with a physical therapist that has the training and expertise you will need to address your issue.
Your physical therapy plan
We offer two different formats of physical therapy. In our inpatient programs, we come to see you while you're still in the hospital. You may be in recovery from a serious accident, or you might be recovering from a traumatic health event, such as a stroke.
Our inpatient physical therapy services are designed to help you build up strength and endurance, so you can leave the hospital and continue with your recovery at home. We will work with you and guide you, and when it's time to leave the hospital, we'll offer discharge instructions, so you can continue your work at home.
Our outpatient physical therapy services are the perfect complement to your at-home work. Here, we'll work with you in a series of appointments, showing you techniques and performing assessments in our clinic. We'll send you home with exercises and stretches you can do at home to work on your recovery every day.
Whether you're getting care as an inpatient or an outpatient, your plan will be tailored to you. We can help you:
- Restore your mobility and function to return to prior level of activities.
- Reduce swelling through manual therapy and Kinesiotape techniques.
- Reduce dizziness and balance issues through vestibular rehabilitation therapy.
- Reduce pain through education and therapeutic methods.
- Address deficits in daily activities, fitness, recreation or sports activities.
- Return to work after industrial injury.
- Design a program for maintenance upon completion of therapy services.
Other physical therapy services we offer
In addition to inpatient and outpatient physical therapy, we offer other services. For example, we offer functional capacity evaluations to determine the level of work capacity an individual is able to do. We also offer sports medicine therapy techniques to athletes in local schools.
You will need a referral to enroll in our outpatient program. Our outpatient rehabilitation services are available Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
