Physical and Occupational Therapy
Northwestern Medicine's Physical and Occupational Therapy team works with patients to develop an individualized treatment program that will help guide a patient's recovery from pain, injury, and/or surgery. Our focus is assisting patients in returning to their prior level of function, including recreational, social, and occupational activities.
Our therapists specialize in patient focused mechanical evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment for musculoskeletal, sports, and general orthopaedic conditions.
We have physical therapists who are board-certified orthopaedic clinical specialists, certified strength and conditioning specialists, and trained or certified in the McKenzie Method for mechanical diagnoses and treatment.
Our Occupational Therapy Hand Specialists are also dedicated to the unique treatment of injuries and conditions affecting the upper extremity including elbow, hand, and wrist, along with any related splinting needs. Occupational Therapy services also include ergonomic and work site evaluations.
The PT/OT clinic is the result of a new partnership between Northwestern Medicine's Orthopaedic Surgery and The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC). Northwestern Medicine's Department of Orthopaedic Surgery's Physical and Occupational Therapy Clinic features 4000 square feet of exercise gym space, along with Men's and Women's lockers. We are conveniently located within Northwestern Medicine's Orthopaedic Surgery Department, 17th floor Galter Pavilion.
With a medical referral patients can call our scheduling department (312-695-6800) to make an appointment. Our goal is to provide appointment options for patients within 3 days, however, patients with medical conditions that require more urgent service should call our representative at 312-926-5807 for scheduling needs.
