What Is Physical Therapy?

These professionals assess joint motion, muscle strength and endurance, cardiac and pulmonary function development, functional ability sensation, and perception integrity of the skin, muscle tone, reflexes, and performance of functional activities.
Physical Therapy for Our Senior Residents & Clients
Physical therapy is for residents or clients with health problems resulting from injury or disease such as a stroke. The physical therapist assists in the recovery process to make them stronger, to relieve their pain, and to help them regain use of an affected limb.
The physical therapist at Allegan County Medical Care Community will teach you how to take care of yourself by showing you how to do physical therapy exercises, like how to use your body properly to gain strength and mobility while preventing a recurring injury.
At Allegan County Medical Care Community, our licensed physical therapists work closely with clients to help restore quality of life by designing individualized physical therapy treatment programs. These programs will increase muscle strength and range of motion, as well as improve functional mobility and relieve pain.
