On-Site Services

Physical Therapy

As part of the continuum of care at GLOC, we offer an on-site physical therapy department that specializes in orthopaedic care and sports medicine. From pre-treatment to post-operative care, our team works directly with physicians to tailor a program that is effective, efficient and evidence driven. In fact, we’re Traverse City’s only physical therapy entity that works directly with the orthopaedic surgeon to plan treatment protocals specific to your surgery. The benefit is a complete health package from one source. We are also happy to coordinate with referring physicians to assist in physical therapy care for their patients.

As fully licensed professionals in physical therapy, our specialists continue to focus on advanced training and education. That education is passed on to patients to help them understand the impact physical therapy can have on their recovery. This shared knowledge makes GLOC’s physical therapy team Northern Michigan’s best source for comprehensive care.

Our team not only helps to manage the physical conditions of patients, but also the budgetary limitations that may occur. By understanding each situation and tailoring a specialized program, physical therapists at GLOC can deliver the maximum results within the fewest visits —saving time, money and headache.

Most importantly, our physical therapists work to understand patient needs, helping them to manage their situations and achieve the maximum function in work, play and life. This one-on-one approach provides comfort to our patients, and better results overall.
