Outpatient Physical Therapy

Our Approach

Geer Physical Therapy is open and ready to serve you. In person or virtual visits to suit your needs. Our staff have all received the Covid-19 vaccine and we take all the necessary protocols to keep you safe and healthy.

Our goal at Geer Physical Therapy is to return patients to their normal activities, as free of pain as possible, as soon as possible!

Physical Therapy is very often an extremely effective way to manage pain and mobility issues. Our fully equipped gym, equipment and access to the YMCA pool provide the appropriate space for the required level of care and treatment.

We treat common conditions such as headaches, neck and low back pain, shoulder and elbow tendonitis and hip and knee, foot and heel pain. We help patients recover from injuries and manage arthritis, jaw pain, workplace ergonomic issues and much more.

Let us find the best approach to help you manage your condition with well-established, non-surgical treatments that offer high benefit with low risk of harmful side effects.

“My daughter is a therapist and wanted me to send a special thank you to Mike and wish him a Happy Birthday. She and I are both extremely thankful to him for the great work he did to prevent neck surgery! Please send him “our” best wishes. ”

Geer Outpatient Physical Therapy Announcement

October 14, 2022

We have made the very difficult decision to downsize and change the service delivery of our Outpatient Physical Therapy Department.

Going forward we will limit our focus to our core mission of serving residents that live on our campus, including those living at the Lodge.

If you have questions regarding your patient records or referral options please reach out to the Outpatient Physical Therapy office at (860) 824-3820.
