Therapy Options at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center

Following a diagnosis, surgery, or treatment, therapy is the corrective process to essentially regain full strength or skill. At Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, it is our goal to provide you with the best therapy options, both Physical and Occupational.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is the focus on improving an impairment via therapeutic exercises, manual therapy, and other techniques for increasing mobility. By using a combination of these techniques, a physical therapist may help with pain relief, building of strength and flexibility, and coordination. The ultimate goal is to help a patient regain full strength and movement through a series of both in-office and at-home treatments.
