Physical Therapy at Norton Sports Health

Norton Sports Health understands every patient is unique. Depending on your injury or your condition, you may need physical therapy as part of your care plan. Norton Sports Health refers you to the physical therapy practice that is right for your condition and close to home or work.

Physical Therapy Options Tailored for Your Life

If you’ve worked with a physical therapist in the past, you can request that practice. If you have a physical therapist or practice you want to use, your physician will make a suggestion based on your treatment plan and a location that’s convenient for you.

Team Approach

When coming back from an injury or condition, you could work with a physical therapist, athletic trainer or both. Your physician may suggest a home exercise program for you based on your injury or condition. You also may have consultations with an athletic trainer in your physician’s office.

The Norton Sports Health difference
