The primary objective of Pratt Medical Center`s Physical Therapy Department is to promote optimum human health and function for the residents of South Central Kansas.

The PRMC Physical Therapy Department is a key component of the health care team with specially trained personnel who are responsible for improving movement and function, relieving pain and expanding the patient`s movement potential. Evaluation and treatment are available by physician referral for inpatients, outpatients, skilled nursing patients and home health patients.
