Westfield Memorial Hospital’s Physical Therapy Department emphasizes education and home exercise, supported with reinforcement and correction in the clinic. This approach empowers you to take charge of your care, reducing needed visits and speeding recovery.
Our staff of licensed and board-certified, experienced physical therapists use the most up-to-date techniques, supported by the latest research. Our physical therapy assistant is also certified and licensed. We work collaboratively with you and your doctor to provide specialized and individualized evaluation and treatment.
