Glenwood's Physical Therapy staff is here to help restore or improve function in patients with physical disabilities. Physical therapy can help you increase and maintain your muscle strength and endurance, restore and increase your range of motion in joints, increase your coordination and prevent falls, and decrease chronic pain.
We educate patients and their families about their therapy as well as the patient's ability to use braces, wheelchairs, artificial limbs, etceteras. Our physical therapist coordinates with your physician to create an individualized treatment plan to help you reach the highest level of function and have the best chance for achieving all your goals.
Some treatments you might be provided include: gait training (walking), transfer training (from chair-to-toilet, bed-to-chair, etc.), bed mobility training, wheelchair mobility training, and Therex. Modalities used by our therapists for the purpose of pain management may include therapeutic stretches, hot packs, ice packs, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation (TENS).
