Make Appointments & Get Care

What is Physical Therapy?

Whether you need to return to an active lifestyle, remain independent, or maintain your sense of well-being, UR Medicine's physical therapy program is designed to help you get back to your daily routine at home and at work.

The goal of physical therapy is to preserve, restore, or enhance physical function that is impaired by injury, disease, or disability. Some typical conditions treated by a physical therapist include, but are not limited to, overuse syndrome, tendonitis, muscle strains and sprains, joint dysfunctions, headaches, jaw problems, and persistent pain.

UR Medicine's Approach

UR Medicine's Physical Therapy program offers a full range of physical therapy treatments for people of all ages, from infancy to older adults.

We offer three kinds of therapy:

Outpatient occupational therapy provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment to address deficits which affect a person’s everyday function related to things like vision, cognition, motor planning, strength, range of motion of the upper extremity, perception, sensation, and dexterity.

Inpatient occupational therapy in the hospital setting helps patients regain independence, with functional tasks to safely transition to the next level of care. This therapy would be provided on the inpatient acute care units or as part of the inpatient rehabilitation program.

Pediatric occupational therapy helps children gain independence while also strengthening the development of necessary skills for them to play, engage in education, complete self-care, and socialize.

We also offer specialists for all types of therapy and for specific diagnoses to help
you regain function in your daily activities with more confidence.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our extensive team of experts has access to state-of-the-art equipment, including ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat and cold therapy, and aquatic therapy.
