Physical Therapy

Physical therapy At North Valley Hospital, our physical therapists are trained to treat inpatients with their biomechanical problems that cause pain or limit function. Latest research has determined that beginning a program immediately after surgery or trauma enables patients to heal faster. The therapists’ goal at North Valley Hospital is to provide patients with that initial treatment for their long-term solutions.

Physical therapists begin improving patient independence through therapeutic exercise, activities, adaptive techniques and the use of special equipment.
