Physical Therapy is the therapeutic use of exercise, massage, heat, sound, and electrical stimulation to relieve pain, develop or restore function, and maintain maximum performance.
Physical Therapy prioritizes treatment based on Military Health Services Systems guidelines. Routine and acute care is available for active duty and beneficiaries enrolled in TRICARE PRIME. Eligible patients will be scheduled an evaluation appointment with a Physical Therapist when a properly completed referral is submitted electronically by your provider.
