Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy provides therapeutic interventions to help patients and students attain their optimal level of function. PTs at Matheny take a personal and client-specific approach to addressing each person’s individual needs. Services may include a neurodevelopmental treatment approach, integrated classroom treatment sessions and supportive services.

Seating and mobility

Patients may receive services such as gait training, balance training, mobility training and therapeutic exercise. They may also benefit from adaptive tricycle riding, standing and alternate positioning programs developed by physical therapists.

Our PTs play an active role in evaluating the positional and adaptive equipment needs of our patients. They are an integral part of our transdisciplinary team, working closely with our physicians in our specialty clinics and with educators, other therapists and nurses.
