Erlanger Adult Outpatient Physical Therapy announced the addition of a downtown location next to the new Erlanger Sports and Health Institute on East Third Street.

 

Physical therapy has a wide range of uses and benefits including management and prevention of conditions as well as post injury care.

Playing an important role in assisting people toward decreased pain, improved mobility and better lifestyles highlighted the need for a second location to benefit more of the community. Physical Therapist devise personalized plans for each patient based on current condition and the patient’s individual goals.

 

“Erlanger’s Rehab Program consisting of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech services has long been known as the best in the city for acute care and outpatient pediatric services,” said Allen Bible, DPT, AVP of Erlanger Orthopaedic and Rehab Services. “Physical Therapy is proven to be an evidence-based, effective treatment option for orthopaedic conditions. With physician growth in Orthopaedics, Sports Med, Neurosurgery, and Primary Care, it just makes sense to give our patients another Erlanger option for Physical Therapy Services.”

The new location provides additional access for patients in need of physical therapy services. All services currently available at the location on Gunbarrel at the Chattanooga Bone and Joint office are available at the new location. Services include manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, functional activities and modalities when indicated.

The office is at 1100 East Third Street, Suite G-103. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and both locations accept patients from all area physicians. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 423-778-2930.
