Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy in North Central Pa.

Get Back on Your Feet With Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation, both inpatient and outpatient, is a form of therapy designed to help you recover from an illness, serious injury, or surgery. Through rehabilitation, you can learn to regain body movements and fine-motor skills, and learn new ways of doing things you did before.
