Types of Physical Therapy

Sunshine provides person-centered care, and you can be confident that your loved ones will receive the high-quality care they need and deserve. As part of our rehabilitation program, licensed therapy staff evaluate and assess to create custom physical therapy treatment plans to meet individual needs and goals of restoring physical function and mobility, and promoting proper physical activity/function.

Treatment is offered in our on-site therapy gym and fitness studio with recovery treatment 7 days per week or at the bedside, if needed. Therapists provide an ongoing assessment to optimize therapy plans to meet the evolving needs of patients gaining mobility, function, and independence. When it is time for discharge, physical therapists educate patients and family and do on-site visits of the home to ensure that post-therapy will be successful.

Physical Therapy at Sunshine

All of our rehabilitation therapists are licensed in the state of Washington and are always earning credits towards continuing education to keep their license current. Additionally, our team of professionals can help diagnose physical abnormalities, restore physical function, increase mobility, work towards fall prevention and improved balance, and promote proper physical activity and function. If specialty equipment is required, physical therapists can recommend equipment or assistive devices such as orthotics, prosthetics, splints, canes, walkers, crutches, grab bars, etc.


What Does Physical Therapy Treat?

Physical Therapy (PT) professionals provide a thorough examination of patients recovering from surgery or experiencing functional loss. We work with residents who have a wide variety of illnesses and injuries, including those who have suffered a stroke or other neurological damage, need orthopedic rehabilitation, or had surgery.

How much therapy will I receive at Sunshine?

The amount of therapy varies depending on your primary diagnosis, other health conditions, cognitive impairment, mechanical/swallowing disorder, and health plan. For example, Medicare Part A covers 100 days of post-acute care where the patient stayed at least three days in an acute care hospital. Other times, Medicare Part B will cover certain therapies.

What is the difference between PT and OT?

Physical therapy focuses on healing and getting the body moving, while occupational therapy focuses on specific activities such as modifying and adapting (such as driving, using mobility equipment) 

Can I do PT at Home? 

Our very experienced physical and occupational therapy team implements the best assessment and treatment tools directed at improved balance, strength, and confidence to maximize function and minimize falls.
