Physical therapy

Physical therapy (PT) restores maximum physical functioning and enables patients to return to an active life as quickly as possible. The goal of a physical therapy program is to restore movement and function, relieve pain and prevent further illness and injury.

Our physical therapists in Waycross, Georgia evaluate and treat problems with movement, balance, strength and conditioning. PT can be beneficial for people who have problems caused by burns, cancer, chronic pain, general rehabilitation issues and balance disorders.

Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy (OT) helps the patient maximize independence and safety in daily living in the areas of self-care, leisure and work. Occupational therapy is skilled treatment that helps patients achieve independence in all facets of their lives.

Occupational therapy gives people the "skills for the job of living" that are needed for independent and satisfying lives. Our occupational therapists create a customized treatment plan based on a comprehensive evaluation of home and job environments. Occupational therapists also provide recommendations on necessary adaptation and guidance for family members and caregivers.
