For some of us there may come a time when our bodies set physical limitations for us, whether from illness, injury or because we are recovering from surgery. When the limitations keep you from moving around or interfere with completing daily tasks, a doctor may prescribe physical therapy.
Physical therapy (or "physiotherapy" when the cause is a disability or illness) is any rehabilitative treatment that helps patients regain mobility, strength, range of motion, balance and coordination. At Mercy our experienced staff of physical therapists will evaluate you and develop a plan to help you meet your goals, whether they are as simple as being steadier when walking or as complex as running marathons again.
Mercy physical therapist commonly treat patients for:
- Back pain
- Tendon or ligament problems, such as an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, a meniscus tear, or plantar fasciitis
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Spinal stenosis
- Parkinson's disease
- Multiple sclerosis
At Mercy our care team is here to work for you. If you think you could benefit from physical therapy or physiotherapy, make an appointment with your doctor to discuss your options, so we can get you back to doing
