You may need physical therapy to help complete your recovery if you have surgery, an injury, or a major illness. Physical therapists put special emphasis on teaching patients so you can fully participate in your own recovery. They can also help determine when you are ready to return to your normal activities without the risk of reinjury.
A San Francisco institution for almost 150 years, St. Mary's Medical Center has earned a reputation for delivering high-quality, personalized health care. Our physical therapists collaborate with outstanding specialists and medical professionals both at the medical center and in the community. Patients have easy access to X-rays, MRIs, and other tests, if needed.
At your initial visit to St. Mary's, a licensed physical therapist will conduct a comprehensive evaluation and develop a treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals. Your treatment plan may include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, education in proper body mechanics, and workplace ergonomics.
You will be assigned a primary physical therapist who will coordinate your treatment plan. Throughout your care, your physical therapist will communicate with your referring physician regarding your progress and consult about any changes to your treatment plan.
