Our Rehabilitation Services
Many people experience injury, accidents, trauma or disease that impacts their ability to enjoy a full range of motion in one or more areas of the body. Through physiotherapy and physical rehabilitation highly trained and specialized doctors and therapists can work with you to help you regain and maintain improved functioning and movement and also to help naturally reduce or eliminate any pain you may be experiencing.
For patients in North Fayette, Findlay, Coraopolis, Moon Township, Pittsburgh and Robinson Township meeting with a physical therapist and discussing the issues you are experiencing is the first step. Your physical therapist will then work with you to develop exercises and activities that you can do in physical rehabilitation sessions as well as at home to help return movement to normal or as close as possible given the injury or health issues.
In addition, the doctors and physical therapists at Allegheny Medical are able to complete employment physicals both pre-hire as well as to confirm ability to return to work after an injury or illness.
