Improving your life with physical therapy

Do you have a nagging ache or pain? Are you getting older and finding it difficult to have the strength or endurance to do activities you once loved?

Physical therapy may be a way to improve your life.

Sometimes patients seek physical therapy in response to an injury or after surgery. Others may look to a physical therapist to improve balance, build strength, or increase mobility.

Patients come to a physical therapist for treatment of a variety of injuries and conditions. For Dianne Wilkins, a fractured femur brought her to PAM Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Tulsa. Read her story here.

Other reasons for physical therapy can include:

  • Fractures and breaks
  • Sprains and strains
  • Post-surgery healing
  • Tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Amputation
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Neurological disorders
  • Orthopedic conditions
  • Respiratory illnesses

With inpatient and outpatient therapy programs available, PAM Health offers options for every patient.

Our team of physical therapists will complete an initial exam and evaluation with the patient. From there, the physical therapist will create an individualized treatment plan. Some plans consist of exercise, massage, and heat while others may include aquatic therapy or neurological techniques.

Each program is customized to meet the needs and goals of the patient. See how our team helped Ron Frick and Quitzely "Kitty" Siler regain function and hope at PAM Health Specialty Hospital of Denver. Watch the video here.

For chronic illness or more severe injuries, an inpatient program gives 24/7 access to our PTs to ensure patients receive the guidance needed at all times.
