Physical Therapy at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab
If you’re an adult having trouble with walking, running, moving objects, or getting dressed, you may benefit from working with one of our physical therapists here at Silver Cross Hospital. We offer physical therapy assessment and treatment on our acute medical floors, inpatient rehabilitation unit and outpatient clinic. We work with you and educate your family about your unique concerns and how physical therapy may improve your overall abilities.
