Our caring, compassionate therapists are an integral part of the patient's health care team to help ensure the highest quality of care. Our physical therapists use hands-on treatment to help restore normal movement and function, relieve pain and improve coordination after surgery or an illness or injury. Our therapists also provide feedback about prior level of function, special care needs, discharge plans and possible home modifications.

After surgery or an illness, getting back on your feet or resuming normal activities is often more than you can handle alone. That's why HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital has a team of skilled professionals to motivate and help rebuild and retrain your body. Our Physical Therapy programs offer:

  • Inpatient and outpatient services
