Physical therapy helps you return to the activities and physical function you want and need to live your life. Physical therapists can help relieve pain and improve movement function. Therapy can help you prevent or recover from a sports injury. Your treatment may include exercise, stretching, or hands-on therapy. We help you understand your illness or condition and how to recover your ability and function in a safe way.
One-on-one treatment sessions are the most effective and coordinating with all of your medical providers leads to the best care and the best outcomes.
Outpatient physical therapy
We provide outpatient services in Lebanon (at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Heater Road and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center) and Cheshire Medical Center in Keene. Your doctor or other care providers may refer you to physical therapy, or you may refer yourself. We can coordinate your visit with any other visit you have at Dartmouth-Hitchcock.
What makes our team different from other physical therapy groups is our commitment to providing you with the best care. We understand that you know your problem best. We will work with you to develop an effective treatment program. We have strong relationships with our referring providers and our local community and regional colleges. Working with Plymouth State University and Franklin Pierce College helps us to stay up-to-date with the latest treatments and techniques.
We have the best equipment including the Active Step and Balance Master machines to assist in the process. Our team includes therapists and therapy assistants with specialized training, working with all ages. We help you get back to your sport, your passion and your life.
