Physical Therapy



The Rehabilitation staff at VMH works with people of all ages, helping them to reduce pain and regain strength,

independence and health. Individual Physical Therapy services provided include athletic training, home health,

work hardening/conditioning, wellness programs, and wound care.

Typically, a patient will undergo an evaluation the first visit. This usually lasts an hour. Then, we'll start treatment and educate the patient on what they can do at home to help decrease pain and become stronger. A lot of patients with orthopedic conditions and arthritis will have heat administered first, then ultrasound or other modalities, exercise, and the sessions are sometimes concluded with ice, depending on the patient's individual needs.
