Froedtert Health Community Memorial Hospital’s Physical Therapy Department is geared to help you reach your highest level of physical ability following an injury, major illness or surgery. This may mean decreasing pain or muscle spasms. It may mean increasing strength, flexibility or endurance. It may even mean teaching you to walk again. With your active participation and the help of a physical therapist, you can learn how to make the most of your abilities through exercise, education and family support.
Expert Staff Working to Meet your Needs
Our team of physical therapists are able to provide treatment from inpatient hospitalization through outpatient care. Our physical therapists have the expertise to identify existing and potential physical problems, treat them and prevent additional injuries. Our staff can explain why weakness or poor posture may affect your ability to perform simple daily activities, work or recreational activities.
