Physical Therapy

Comprehensive Physical Therapy from Head to Toe

McLean County Foot & Ankle (MCFA) offers on site, full-body physical therapy.

Physical therapy (PT) offers benefits for people of all ages and can help with a wide range of issues, helping people to manage everything from heart and lung disease, diabetes, and vascular conditions to pain and other age-related issues. PT can also help you avoid surgery, recover from a stroke, regain your original capabilities, prevent injuries, maximize mobility, improve balance and avoid dependence on pain medication.

Our licensed staff of three friendly physical therapy specialists use a combination of holistic therapeutic services to benefit not only the affected area, but your overall health and wellness.

From balance training for seniors to active range of motion therapy to improve your golf game; from performance athletes to post-operative recovery, we can help you learn to enjoy life again!

The equipment and techniques we employ to help relieve pain and restore function are called therapeutic modalities, and we keep up to date with the latest interventions and devices to help strengthen, relax and heal your muscles and joints and get you in and out of treatment fast.

Come in, visit our therapy department and schedule your initial evaluation today.

A physician’s referral is required.
