Physical therapy in Rawlins, Wyoming
The licensed professionals in our Rawlins clinic provide physical therapy care for a variety of conditions, including general orthopedics, sports medicine, pre- and post-operative care, total joint rehab, running analysis and custom orthotics. In addition to physical therapy treatments, we are able to provide athletic training and sports specific rehabilitation training to school-age and adult athletes, including free injury screenings.
