Physical Therapy

According to the American Physical Therapy Association, “Physical therapists are the movement experts. We help people move forward. We help people who have had a stroke or an amputation regain their independence. We help children with cerebral palsy improve their overall function and participation in life. We help people move forward. Movement is essential to our everyday lives. Having the ability to move safely and effectively is crucial in our lives and the lives of the people physical therapists treat. The physical therapy profession empowers people to move forward and take control of the movement that is so important in all of our lives.”

Our physical therapy teams in Sioux Falls and Rapid City perform a variety of evaluations in order to determine each person's ability to move. These evaluations also determine each person's potential for learning new movement skills or in determining if therer is adapted equipment or assistive technology that will the the person's ability to move about.
