Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

After surgery, injury or illness, regaining strength, mobility and endurance are the first steps to returning to everyday life. Because no one can do this alone, Lower Bucks Hospital offers an expert inpatient physical therapy and rehabilitation program as well as outpatient physical therapy.

Physical therapy: Our approach

At Lower Bucks Hospital our team begins with an initial consultation that assesses each patient’s challenges, capabilities and goals. Each physical rehabilitation program is individually designed and administered by a Licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy, who consistently guides each patient from the first visit through recovery.

Whether it’s physical rehabilitation for the back, neck, hips or knees, or treatment for an on-the-job injury, or preventing falls, Lower Bucks Hospital takes a creative approach, often using specialized training equipment to meet a range of needs. We also follow up with an easy-to-use written home exercise program that lets patients continue and maintain a long-term recovery.
