Physical therapy is a medical profession that utilizes conservative interventions – such as specific exercise and manual therapy – to help bridge the gap between a patient’s current state of physical wellbeing and where he or she wants to be. If you desire to crawl across the carpet with your grandchildren or reach into the pantry without shoulder pain, physical therapy is uniquely poised to help you accomplish these goals, without surgery, medications, or injections. At Rock Valley Physical Therapy, we design a specific treatment plan to reach your goals, facilitated via one-on-one treatment sessions.
Who Can Benefit?
Physical therapy services are for anyone struggling to complete recreational or daily activities due to pain, weakness, stiffness, or imbalance.
