About Physical Therapy
The Morton County Health System Physical Therapy Department has a passion for helping patients return to what is most meaningful to them in their personal lives.
Physical therapy focuses on enhancing the overall physical health, fitness, and quality of life of our patients through individualized treatment programs. We value compassion, dignity, and respect of each patient and work together to establish functional meaningful goals.
Physical therapy incorporates strengthening, range of motion, coordination, balance, functional activities, taping techniques, soft tissue and joint mobilization, as well as modalities to name a few. Physical therapy also helps with wounds to enhance the healing process.
We work with patient of all ages and all types of diagnoses ranging anywhere from post- surgery such as joint replacements and ligament/tendon repairs, sports injuries, stroke impairments, balance and vertigo, back and neck pain, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, falls, and congenital disabilities to name a few.
In the state of Kansas, Physical Therapists can evaluate patients without the referral of a physician/provider. Make sure to check with your particular insurance plan to see if they also allow this or if they will only cover PT with a doctor’s order.
We are located in the far north end of the Morton County Medical Clinic at 441 Sunset. Please contact our office at 620-697-5692 to discuss your PT needs.
The staff at the MCHS PT dept is proud to offer more than 40 years of experience combined.
