Therapy Services


Physical therapist with patient

Our Therapy Services Department specializes in the treatment of injuries and disorders -- particularly those sustained by trauma, orthopedic or neurological injury, burns, cancer, or wounds. We also offer therapeutic recreation for eligible patients.

The University of Chicago Medicine has highly skilled therapists who design treatment plans that are unique to each individual's rehabilitation needs. Working with physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, and other health professionals, our therapists employ a team approach to patient care.

Our mission is to provide superior therapy services to all persons referred, in a compassionate, competent and effective manner, ever mindful of each patient's dignity and individuality. We facilitate professional development of therapists and students, and contribute to the professional body of knowledge through participation in research, data collection and professional presentation/publication.
