Physical Therapy


Rehabilitation teams at Lancaster General Health have been carefully selected to provide the best therapies available. We work with patient and physician to select the most effective treatment plan available. Patients have access to high tech equipment, often available only to elite athletes.

Through experience we have learned that while proper tools are needed, the most important factor in the rehabilitation process is the relationship that our therapists have with their patients. We often receive communications from past patients who are eager to share new accomplishments in their lives.

The goal of all rehab efforts is to return patients to the highest level of function possible, so that they may resume normal lifestyles. Occasionally during treatment, patients hit "road blocks." But our therapy teams are trained in a wide range of therapeutic techniques, allowing us to easily adapt our treatment plan to methods that may prove more effective.
