Physical Therapy

Supervised Exercise & Recovery Programs in Mauston

After receiving care from a hospital for an injury or illness, you may still experience some difficulty moving and resuming your normal life. Physical therapy is a long-term treatment program designed to help patients overcome lingering symptoms and pains from their condition. Physical therapy allows you to work closely with a knowledgeable physical therapist who will design a treatment plan tailored to your condition, goals and lifestyle.

You may benefit from physical therapy if you live with:

  • Back and neck pain (disc, muscular and joint problems)
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder or arm problems
  • Knee, ankle or foot issues
  • Balance and gait problems
  • Arthritis and tendinitis
  • Dizziness (vestibular problems)
  • Lymphedema (swelling disorder)

Access to physical therapy experts without a referral

At Mile Bluff, patients can take advantage of convenient direct access appointments for physical therapy services. Direct access allows patients to see a physical therapist without an order (referral) from a medical providers. This process eliminates the need for extra steps to be completed before patients can receive the help they need. The sooner physical therapy is started, the quicker patients can get back to being their best.

This most benefits those who experience muscle injuries. For example, the softball player who twists a knee, the gardener who hurts his/her back, the hiker who sprains an ankle, etc. Direct access is not meant for those who have issues that are associated with a major condition (stroke, lymphedema, etc.) that may require more long-term assistance.

Direct access is only covered by certain insurance carriers at this time. Currently, Medicare and Medicaid do not provide coverage for direct access.
