Physical Therapy


Physical Therapy is a health profession that specializes in treatment and specific training and exercises for physical limitations and musculoskeletal injuries. We offer physical modalities for pain relief, swelling relief, and muscle relaxation; and therapeutic exercises for improving joint mobility, muscle strength, cardio-vascular and muscle endurance, walking ability, and other functional limitations.

Many of our patients receive directed programs for total joint replacements, sports injuries, back and neck injuries, stroke and neurological injuries, balance difficulties, wound care, and weakness and limited self-care from other diseases or surgery.

Physician referral is not required for physical therapy services. Most insurance companies will cover these services, however it is the patient's responsibility to confirm with their insurance company if physical therapy services are covered. Our licensed physical therapists and certified physical therapist assistants at Scott County Hospital are ready to serve you.
