Our Services

Our physical therapists and occupational therapists excel in evaluating and treating adults and children who have musculoskeletal injuries/problems and pain of the neck, back, shoulder, knee, hand/wrist, and foot/ankle. Rehab for hospitalized patients as well as outpatients after stroke or surgery is a passion for the Cary Hospital Rehab team.
