Physical Therapy

The physical therapy department at Meadville Medical Center (MMC) is involved with evaluating and treating disorders of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. The ultimate goal of physical therapy is to restore maximal functional independence to each individual patient. The treatments promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability. The basic goals of physical therapy are: to relieve pain and discomfort, to regain movement and promote feeling, to restore function to the injured body part, to rebuild confidence and motivate patients to work toward recovery, and to help people adapt to any permanent physical changes.
