At Perry County Memorial Hospital, we offer a fully equipped physical therapy department to treat a variety of conditions. These include:
Burn and wound care
Generalized muscle weakness
Neck, back and shoulder afflictions
Post-fracture or post-surgical joint replacements
Physical therapists are highly trained individuals, who utilize various modalities such as:

Myofascial Release (MFR)
A gentle manual technique that utilizes gentle application of sustained pressures, facilitating the release and elongation of fascial restrictions.
FASCIA IS the internal skin attached to bones, muscles, tendons and organs. Fascia reacts to physical and emotional trauma by shortening its fibers in the injured area. People suffering from fascial restrictions may experience dysfunctions varying from significant posture deviations to muscle and nerve dysfunction.
MFR produces unrestricted mobility and natural elasticity of connective tissues promoting healthy, pain-free fascia.
