Patient-centered treatments

Knoxville Hospital & Clinics (KHC) has established a partnership with 21st Century Rehab, an Iowa-owned professional practice dedicated to quality therapy services. They provide physical therapy (PT) as well as occupational therapy (OT) to our patients.

The goal of the physical therapist is to find the precise mechanism for patient’s pain and correct the underlying movement impairment. By understanding a daily habits, including job activities, hobbies and general lifestyle, the physical therapist is able to identify and correct the movement impairments that are causing the pain or dysfunction, rather than just treating the area where the pain is manifested. The therapist will develop a treatment program that will help you achieve the highest level of function in the least amount of time.
