Outpatient Physical Therapy

  • Outpatient physical therapy allows people to receive therapy in their community, usually at a local clinic, and often treat patients with similar medical conditions as those in an inpatient setting. The difference is that patients visiting a clinic tend to have conditions that, while acute in nature, are less medically complex, with fewer comorbidities.
  • Outpatient Physical Therapy is also an option for patients who do not meet homebound criteria required for Home Health but require physical therapy.
  • The goal of Outpatient Physical Therapy is to help the patient gain strength and mobility to make life more enjoyable and to prevent accidents.
