Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

You deserve an active, pain-free life. If a chronic condition or recent injury has left you hurting, Leon is here to help. Our team of physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, licensed massage therapists and physical therapy aids will help you reach your goals.

We offer treatments and therapies that support muscle strength and improved balance, and help reduce pain. And with a physical therapy location at each of Leon’s seven centers, our expert team is where you need it, when you need it.

You can count on Leon to help you restore movement and improve your quality of life. We offer all of this while also caring for you with the white-glove service that Leon is known for.

Quick Access to Care

Physical therapy is a vital step in your recovery after an orthopedic surgery. At Leon, you’ll never have to wait to get moving. You’ll see our physical therapy team the day after you’re discharged from the hospital. We’ll get started right away with an initial evaluation and will work with you to make a treatment plan. If you need transportation to and from physical therapy appointments, Leon will drive you free of charge.

Healing Beyond Physical Therapy

Your healing doesn’t stop when you complete physical therapy. At Leon Medical Centers, six of our seven physical therapy sites are located next to our Healthy Living Centers. This gives you easy access to the next stage in your recovery.

At our Healthy Living Centers, you can work on more advanced movements and join classes to build strength and improve balance and coordination. These include Tai Chi, dance and core strengthening.

We treat a wide range of common and more complex problems that may cause you pain or make it hard for you to move. These include:

  • Physical de-conditioning (weakness)
  • Balance disorders
  • Gait (walking) disturbances
  • Orthopedic conditions (including post-surgery rehabilitation)
  • Stroke-related muscle weakness or movement problems

Treatment Options

Our physical therapy locations offer state-of-the-art exercise equipment and the therapeutic and training methods you need to make the best possible recovery. These include:

  • Electrical stimulation
  • Gait (walking) training
  • Hydrotherapy (whirlpool)
  • Manual (hands-on) therapy and massage
  • Transfer training (moving from one surface to another)

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Problems with your vestibular system (inner ear) can lead to balance and movement disorders. At Leon, our team of physical therapists and physical therapy assistants are certified in vestibular rehabilitation. This means they have gone a step further in their training and can provide an even higher level of care for vestibular problems.

One Place for Care

You can enjoy seamless care at Leon Medical Centers.

Our physical therapy department, specialists, urgent care centers and diagnostics department share the same electronic health record. This helps our team work better together on your plan of care. You can also access your health record if you need care while traveling to another city, state or country.

If you need to see other specialists, we’ll coordinate those appointments and can drive you there, too.
