Physical Therapy

Nexus Specialty Hospital’s Physical Therapy Services focuses on the physical aspects of function relating to the patient’s neuromuscular status. Our licensed therapists are extremely experienced and understand the physical and mental challenges a patient may face during the healing process.  We work with patients and families to help each individual achieve his or her optimal developmental and functional levels.

Our Approach to Treatment

Our Physical Therapy treatment at Nexus Specialty Hospital focuses on the mobility of the patient through direct one-on-one therapy and family/caregiver education for carryover between therapy sessions.  Patients undergo a comprehensive assessment prior to beginning therapy to determine a treatment plan based on their unique needs. Progress is monitored and goals are updated and modified as needed.

Some issues we address include, but are not limited to:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Tone imbalances
  • Motor sequencing
  • Balance and coordination
  • Endurance
  • Head and trunk control
  • Gait impairment
