Physical Therapy

Physical therapists use movement to optimize healing through exercise and patient education. At CIMA Medical Center, our Miami physical therapy team teaches you how to prevent or manage conditions and promotes the ability to move in more functional and less painful ways to prevent further disabilities. We work with you to develop fitness through wellness programs proactively designed to prevent the loss of mobility before it happens.

A Healthier and More Active Lifestyle

Our physical therapy team members offer rehabilitation treatment plans ranging from joint mobilization and muscle stimulation to therapeutic massage in order for you to have a healthier and more active lifestyle. Our staff helps you at all phases of healing, from an initial diagnosis through all stages of recovery. Although physical therapy can be an option of its own, it often supports other treatments offered by your medical team.
