Physical Therapy


At Jackson Park Hospital’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation,
the focus of our Physical Therapy Program is to relieve pain, restore impaired functions, improve mobility and prevent or reduce permanent physical disabilities.  Upon referral from a doctor, our experienced therapists will perform a one-on-one assessment and evaluation to develop an individualized program of care tailored to each patient’s needs.  The needs of the patient are addressed through education, training and treatment.

A patient's individualized treatment plan may encompass various techniques including therapeutic exercise, gait training, manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education, stretching, postural re-education, and various modalities such as Ultrasound, Electrical Stimulation, Heat and/or Cold therapy to relieve pain.  The objective of these treatment techniques is for the patient to build strength and endurance, gain range of motion, and improve balance and coordination while reducing and or eliminating pain. Our goal is to return patients to optimal health to improve their overall well being and quality of life.

Our qualified and compassionate physical therapists can treat a wide range of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions which include but are not limited to:

  • Orthopedic conditions (surgical and nonsurgical)
  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain
  • Hip, knee, and foot pain

  • Fractures
  • Osteoarthritis

If you suffer from one of these conditions or are recovering from one of these injuries, we encourage you to discuss our physical therapy services with your physician.  If you have any questions or would like more information, please call (773) 947-7703.  One of our knowledgeable, licensed and caring Physical Therapists will be glad to assist you in providing the information you desire.
