Experience the Benefits of Peak Fitness Physical Therapy

Lincoln Hospital & Peak Fitness Physical Therapy coordinate with physicians in providing individualized patient care. We strive to treat symptoms, to determine the core cause of the health problem, and to educate patients and caregivers to assist in our patients reaching peak levels of wellness. We also endeavor to educate community members and non-patient clientele, especially young athletes, in promoting improved fitness and performance.

What Is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy works to identify the cause of patient discomfort, pain, or weakness. An individualized treatment plan is created to support patients in their efforts to improve their physical health and fitness levels. Patients are monitored and motivated by the therapist to reach their peak level of fitness and to progress to independent home plans for continues well-being. Communication with patients’ physicians during these treatment steps helps to create seamless patient care.

How Can Physical Therapy Help You?

Physical therapy uses several approaches to treat a variety of conditions that adversely affect your ability to be healthy and to function productively and safely.

Peak Fitness & Lincoln Hospital Physical Therapy can help with recovery from spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, leg ankle, and foot injuries or procedures.
