Our physical therapy treatment facilities are housed in the new section of Val Verde Regional Medical Center. We have a large gym area with treadmills, bikes, a stair stepper, a ski machine, weights, mats, a hydrotherapy room and private treatment rooms.
Our physical therapy staff is licensed by the state of Texas and dedicated to providing our community with the highest level of rehabilitation services.
We are able to care for our patients throughout the entire continuum of care—from inpatient to outpatient or home.
To initiate a physical therapy program, a physical therapist must first examine the patient. This includes gathering history and selecting and administering specific tests and measures to obtain data.
The physical therapist will work with the patient, doctors, family and caregivers to determine goals. These goals will determine the specific types of interventions the team will use to achieve the desired outcome.
There are several ways to achieve your physical therapy goals. Exercise, strength training, balance training, manual therapy techniques, postural retraining, wound care and education are just a few of those ways.
