Physical Therapy



TAMC’s physical therapy staff work with inpatients and outpatients to determine a patient’s strengths, weaknesses, and limitations and then establish a treatment plan and goals based on the patient’s needs. Our therapists conduct treatments to restore movement and relieve pain. The patient is monitored to determine his/her response to treatment program. The physical therapist communicates with physicians and other health team members via reports and conferences on the patient’s progress, when appropriate.
