Physical therapists at Baystate Rehabilitation Care evaluate flexibility, strength and ability to function. Therapists will implement a treatment program to restore and maximize movement and function. Protocols are coordinated with referring physicians.
We provide outpatient orthopedic physical therapy to patients of all ages for musculoskeletal dysfunctions and injuries. We also provide pre and post-operative care and education that enables patients to transition to an independent program that helps maximize function and quality of life.
