Physical Therapy

Compassionate Care to Evaluate and Treat a Range of Physical Conditions

Gottlieb Memorial Hospital provides comprehensive physical therapy to patients in the hospital as well as those who come to our rehab center on the hospital campus.

Inpatient Physical Therapy

Inpatients may require physical therapy for a number of reasons, most often after surgery, injury or illness. One of the goals of therapy is to improve patients’ mobility, such as walking, stair climbing and getting in and out of bed. Other patients may be seen to improve muscle strength, reduce pain or to improve endurance.

The inpatient physical therapy department is located on the fourth floor of the hospital.

Outpatient Physical Therapy

Our outpatient facility is located on the first floor of the Rehabilitation Services Building (on the east end of the hospital campus, next to the Gottlieb Center for Fitness). Patients with a variety of conditions are seen, including many who are being treated for an orthopaedic condition or injury, such as:

  • Recovery from total joint surgery
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Ankle sprains
  • Neck and back pain
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Various muscular or joint disorders

Patients are treated for several other reasons, including balance difficulties, peripheral neuropathy, lymphedema, stroke rehabilitation and temporalmandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction.
