Physical Therapy

Physical therapy can help restore physical function, improve mobility and relieve day-to-day aches and pains. Additionally, physical therapy can prevent or limit permanent physical disability in individuals suffering from injuries or disease. And it can restore, maintain and promote overall fitness and health.

Wesley's highly trained physical therapists in Wichita provide comprehensive evaluation and establish treatment programs designed to fit each individual’s needs and condition. Wesley provides both inpatient and outpatient physical therapy services for visitors of all ages. Our physical therapists believe that patients must take an active role in their care to achieve the desired outcomes.

Outpatient services are provided at Health Strategies, across the street from the medical center in suite 203.
