Rehabilitation: Physical therapy

Bay Area Medical Center provides a full range of one-on-one therapy in a personal and friendly environment for patients with a wide variety of conditions. Our therapists and therapy assistants are highly trained and hold additional specialized certifications to help you recover from injury or illness.

How can physical therapy help you?

Physical therapy can help you reach your healing potential, making a long term impact on your quality of life. Treatment programs are created based on your specific health goals, ultimately reflecting your own lifestyle and expectations. The goals can be, but are not limited to: preventing or limiting permanent disabilities, increasing the ability to walk, climb stairs, perform activities of daily living, improve balance, increase strength, increase endurance, decrease swelling/inflammation, decrease pain, and improve flexibility and/or motion.

What does physical therapy treat?

Physical therapy treats a variety of orthopedic, geriatric, pediatric, neurological and women’s health issues. Including, but not limited to:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Tendonitis (inflammation of connection between muscles and bones)
  • Athletic injuries
  • Post-surgical care
  • Work related injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ)
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Balance disorders
  • Neurological conditions (i.e. brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, spinal cord injury, etc.)
  • Women’s health issues (i.e. pelvic pain, incontinence, etc.)
  • Lymphedema

What types of treatments are provided?

The treatment program is designed after completion of an initial evaluation. Treatment often includes exercises to promote flexibility and range of motion. Once this improves, the plan of care is advanced to include other exercises to improve strength, balance, coordination and endurance. The goal is to improve an individual’s function at work and at home. If appropriate, patients may also perform their therapy treatment program in our warm water pool. Aquatic therapy utilizes buoyancy, warm water and exercise to allow patients to start their rehabilitation program sooner with less pain. Modalities may also be used, such as electrical stimulation, iontophoresis, ultrasound, mechanical traction or cold laser to promote healing, reduce swelling and/or relieve pain. Therapists can also teach patients to use assistive or adaptive devices. Patients will also be educated in a home exercise program to expedite their recovery.
