Physical Therapy

Enjoy a return to mobility and better health

The human body is extremely adaptable. This is where our physical therapists come in.

At CMH, our board-certified physical therapists will help you return to your prior level of function in work, sports, and recreational activities—and help maximize abilities when a physical impairment is present.

Our goal is to help patients experience relief from pain, improve coordination, strengthen muscles, and enjoy a return to functional mobility or to your sports/fitness level. As patients improve, they often notice an improvement in their general health, including better circulation and faster healing.

Physical Therapy services provide treatments for conditions such as the following:

  • Post injury and/or surgical recovery for pain relief, mobilization, and strengthening
  • Pain relief for neck, back, and extremities
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Stroke recovery
  • Vestibular dysfunction with dizziness
  • Balance problems
  • TMJ/jaw dysfunction
  • Concussion recovery
  • Headaches
  • Neuromuscular diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and muscular dystrophy
  • Sports injuries
  • Pelvic dysfunction

Specialized services also include:

  • Pediatric services
  • Parkinson’s LSVT BIG program
  • Wheelchair evaluations
  • Pelvic health program

Our physical therapists may use treatments such as the following to aid your recovery:

  • Individualized therapeutic exercises

  • Electrical stimulation
  • Traction
  • Manual therapy techniques such as joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, neural manipulation, myofascial release, and use of Graston equipment

PT Pelvic Health at CMH

We are pleased to announce the launch of a Pelvic Health Rehabilitation program, which will include assessments, treatments, and custom exercises.

Three outpatient physical therapists have experience treating patients with pelvic health dysfunctions and look forward to working with you. “Many people don’t realize that there are treatments for pelvic conditions,” they explain. “Our team has been gaining advanced training, and they can now provide more specialized, quality care closer to home.”

Evaluation and treatment for:

  • Urinary frequency and/or incontinence
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Dysmenorrhea
  • Dyspareunia
  • Endometriosis/Adenomyosis
  • Vulvar pain
  • Sacroiliac/low back pain
  • Pre/postpartum concerns

The above list is not exhaustive. Many other conditions can benefit from Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy as well. Please contact our Physical Therapy department for more information.

Physical Therapy is part of CMH’s Concussion Rehabilitation Program Team

Are you experiencing sleepiness, nausea, more frequent headaches, dizziness, difficulty concentrating or mental fog, sensitivity to light or noise, or vision problems? You may be experiencing the effects of a concussion: a traumatic injury causing the temporary loss of normal brain function.

Early intervention is crucial to concussion patients’ recovery. The CMH Concussion Rehabilitation Program works with this concept in mind—offering compensatory techniques to lessen symptoms and identify functional impairments before they affect performance.

As part of the program, physical therapy assesses and treats impairments involving balance and vestibular function, functional movement, neck/back/headache pain, vision, exertion, strength, and range of motion.

Ask your physician for a referral to the CMH Concussion Rehabilitation Program.

A new lease on life: a CMH Physical Therapy testimonial

Sean Cain suffered a serious motorcycle accident in 2005. The accident required him to have 17 surgeries in 13 years. Although Sean pursued recovery treatment elsewhere, it wasn’t until he became a patient at CMH in 2017 that he began to see life-changing results. Through a combination of physical, speech, and occupational therapy, Sean was able to finally solve the traumatic brain injury symptoms he had been suffering for over a decade. He credits the caring and understanding rehabilitation staff for the confidence he has regained in himself.
