Physical Therapy services at the Iowa Veterans Home
Residents with pain or diseases that hinder movement or the use of arms or legs often benefit from Physical Therapy. A physician's order is necessary to receive Physical Therapy treatments. The Physical Therapy Program is intended to be a short-term, rehab-oriented treatment that will help the residents become as independent as possible or knowledgeable about how to help oneself relieve discomfort and pain. Other levels of therapy include Restorative Nursing and Open Gym which may be appropriate for residents needing maintenance therapy. The Therapy Clinic and Open Gym are located on the first floor of the Dack building.
