Physical Therapists are mobility experts. Motion is necessary to be able to perform daily activities, to return to work, and to be able to participate in leisure activities you enjoy. Our physical therapists work in collaboration with you—depending upon your challenges, goals, and needs—to design a program, including an individualized home exercise program, to promote normal motion, restore function, relieve pain and prevent disability, and ultimately to promote optimal health and improve quality of life.

Pondera Medical Center physical therapists provide treatment across the lifespan from infancy to geriatrics. Our physical therapists evaluate and provide evidence-based treatment for low back pain, neck pain, headaches, arthritis, osteoporosis, post-surgical joint replacements, sports injuries, pelvic pain, incontinence, developmental delays, and many other conditions.
