Go places, do things, get back to your life.
If you’re recovering from an injury, illness or surgery, you’ve come to the right place. Hillcrest has been improving people’s lives with quality healthcare since 1951 and now anyone, any age, can get the benefits of our expertise in physical therapy and rehabilitation at our new outpatient physical therapy location in Durham.
Using a comprehensive range of physical therapy treatment methods, we can help you reduce pain, regain flexibility, build strength and improve mobility so you can get back to doing the things you enjoy as quickly and safely as possible.
All therapy is provided in personalized, one-on-one sessions and designed to make your rehabilitation a great experience. Treatment is based on your condition and capabilities, and often involves hands-on manual therapy, along with selected exercises (using light weights and/or aerobics). If required, specialized therapeutic techniques are available from specially trained staff. For more information on specialized care, click here.
The goals of physical therapy are:
- Reduced pain in muscles and joints
- Optimal post-surgical and post-illness recovery
- Improved balance, mobility, and fall prevention
- Improved and accelerated recovery from sports or work-related injuries
