Physical and occupational therapy

Frio Rehabilitation Center offers some of the best physical therapists (PTs) and occupational therapists (OTs) in Pearsall and Frio County.

Our therapists work together with your doctor to make sure your care is seamlessly coordinated and that you get back to your best self as quickly as possible.

Depending on your needs, you may receive care from a PT an OT or both.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy is designed to help you move better, relieve your pain and help improve or restore your physical function.

Physical therapy can help with various medical complexities and can help with recovery following surgery. The goal is to make daily tasks and activities easier through improved physical mobility.

Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy is aimed at enhancing your ability to care for yourself at home and potentially return to work.

Our OTs will help adapt different environments and promote skill development and independence in daily activities, such as feeding, bathing, dressing, cooking, playing, and working.
