Physical Therapy

The Outer Banks Hospital offers physical therapy on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. Physical therapy may be part of your hospital stay if you have been admitted for an injury or if you are recovering from an elective procedure such as knee or hip replacement surgery. Your primary care physician or specialist may also refer you for physical therapy to help you restore your physical mobility and function as a result of illness or injury. Physical therapy is also an effective tool for athletes to help prevent injury. Learn more.

Physical therapists are licensed professionals who use therapeutic techniques such as exercise, joint mobilization, hot/cold therapy, and electrical stimulation to help restore movement, decrease pain, and prevent disability. The goal of physical therapy is to help you return to normal mobility.
