Outpatient Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation

Top Physical Therapy Program in Wilmington

The closely monitored care you receive in the hospital is called “acute” care. Acute care typically only lasts anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. This is usually enough time for patients to recover from the most immediate concerns of their medical condition and return home. Being released from the hospital, however, does not necessarily mean you have fully recovered. Injuries and illnesses can often result in long-term effects that require an extended recovery period. Rehabilitation and physical therapy are a means to continue your treatment with medical professionals as you overcome physical limitations and improve your quality of life.

Physical Therapy at Saint Francis Healthcare

Our physical therapy program is built on the unique needs of the patient. We focus on therapeutic exercise, patient education, physical agents and manual therapy. During your first session, the rehabilitation team will assess your condition and design a therapy program that addresses the more debilitating effects of your condition. Once we have a better grasp of your situation and goals, your treatment can begin.

Rehabilitation may involve exercise, diet creation, relaxation techniques and other activities that will be supervised by a knowledgeable physical therapist. The goal of the program is to both help you recover and learn how to continue these activities on your own so that you can improve your health and wellness independently.

Our approach to physical therapy and rehabilitation is unique for several reasons:

  • We limit patient intake to ensure intensive one-on-one care with current participants
  • We stay with the patient throughout their entire session, every session
  • Every patient receives a one-hour evaluation before a treatment plan is created
  • We treat orthopaedic conditions and neurological disorders (vestibular disorders/dizziness, post-stroke, lower leg weakness, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, etc.)
  • We assist patients who suffer from impaired balance
  • We provide education on fall prevention

The members of Saint Francis Healthcare’s outpatient physical therapy team are among the best in their field. We have therapists with credentials in vestibular rehab, functional movement, and the McKenzie Method.
