Improve & Restore

The main goal of our physical therapists at HCMC is to improve and restore motion to your life. As you make the important decisions about health care for you or your family, it is important to remember that physical therapists:

  • Significantly improve mobility to perform daily activities
  • Provide an alternative to painful and expensive surgery, in many cases
  • Manage or eliminate pain without medication and its side effects, in many cases.

When it comes to health care, one size does not fit all. A physical therapist’s extensive education, clinical expertise, and “hands on” approach brings you a unique, individualized approach. When you are in the hands of one of HCMC’s physical therapists, you have a plan of care that is safe and appropriate and addresses your individual needs and pre-existing conditions.

To receive outpatient therapy one must have a physician’s order. Most insurance plans cover therapy as long as ordered by a physician.

Our staff at the Center for Wellness is comprised of five physical therapists, two physical therapy assistants, one occupational therapist and one speech language pathologist. Debbie Jelks, Director of Rehabilitation Services, is certified in pediatric physical therapy.

We offer the McKenzie approach to spinal pathologies, total joint replacement classes twice a month and functional movement screenings.
