Restoring your independence
Our Physical Therapy team helps to regain function, improve mobility, relieve
pain and prevent or limit physical disabilities for patients of all ages
who suffer from injuries or disease.
As part of an interdisciplinary team of medical experts, our highly skilled
physical therapists work with you to restore, maintain and promote overall
fitness and health while you are in our hospital and once you return home.
If you are a patient in need of post-surgical follow-up or extension of
medical care, our outpatient gym is fully equipped for a broad range of
physical rehabilitation services.
Our physical therapy team treats these and other related conditions:
- Anterior hip replacements
- Balance disorders

Working with children and high-risk infants, our occupational and physical
therapists assess and treat infants with developmental and oral-motor
deficits. They also make splints to correct musculoskeletal deformities.
Our staff includes occupational therapists who are certified in advanced
practice for Modified Barium Swallow Studies in the
neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
We offer occupational and physical therapy to infants who have been discharged
from our NICU and also provide outpatient care at our High Risk Infant
Follow-Up Clinic, located in our nearby
Perinatal Center. Our therapists monitor the development growth of high-risk infants until
the age of three.
Occupational and physical therapists at Valley Presbyterian Hospital are
paneled by California Children's Services (CCS), a statewide program
that treats children with certain physical limitations and chronic health
conditions or diseases. CCS can authorize and pay for specific medical
services and equipment provided by CCS-approved specialists.
Therapists work individually with children who have medical conditions
that are physically disabling or require medical, surgical or rehabilitative
services. These conditions include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Club Foot
- Congenital deformities
- Global developmental delays
- Involved neuromuscular diagnoses
- Oral-motor deficits
