Sanford Health Physical Therapy
After an injury or illness, a person may have a hard time moving around. Muscles may get weak, joints can get stiff, and balance and walking may be difficult. Physical therapists (PT) help patients regain strength and re-learn skills such as sitting up and walking. If leg braces or artificial limbs are needed, the PT teaches patients to safely use them.
Physical Therapy is available to all patients in the Dickinson and Minot areas through specialists located within the Sanford Health Occupational Medicine Clinic in each city.
The goal of physical therapy at Sanford Health Occupational Medicine Clinic is to provide treatment to help decrease pain and improve range of motion and strength, enabling the person to, in a timely manner, return to their previous level of function in their daily life. Rehabilitation can be achieved through therapeutic exercise, education and training. Physical therapy also offers treatments including ultrasound, massage, electrical stimulation, and spinal traction to help with pain, inflammation and muscle spasms.
