HealthFirst Medical Group provides physical therapy services for our industrial patients as well as our orthopedic and post-operative patients. Physical therapy is used as an adjunct treatment to accelerate healing, educate patients as to proper bio mechanics/ergonomics, strengthen, increase endurance, and expedite a return to full pre-injury status.
