The physical therapists at Mountain Land Rehabilitation provide a variety of services that focus on the neurological and musculoskeletal systems. As the expert in functional mobility and normal movement patterns the physical therapist’s primary areas of focus are transfers, bed mobility, gait, wheelchair mobility and management, and stair management.
Our therapists evaluate the patient’s neurological and musculoskeletal systems using specific test measures. A skilled therapist will assess the patient’s overall functional ability and identify any movement dysfunction that exists. Other areas evaluated include balance, posture, skin, sensation, and endurance. The physical therapy program includes stimulation of sensorimotor pathways and the use of a variety of therapeutic techniques to guide the return of normal, meaningful movement. To increase a patient’s functional mobility, areas of sensory-motor dysfunction, which include range of motion, strength and motor control, endurance, balance, and coordination, may need to be addressed at the same time. Treatments takes place in individual as well as group sessions.
