Meet Our Team of Rehab Staff

Physical Therapy


Our therapists have a wide variety of special interest areas, including post-operative orthopedic rehab, treatment of vertigo, gait and balance disorders, neurologic disorders including Multiple Sclerosis, helping athletes recover from injury and return to sport, and working with patients with chronic conditions such as cardiopulmonary disease, CHF, diabetes, or pain to better manage their health and reach their goals. 
 
All of our Physical Therapists are active members of the American Physical Therapy Association and some hold memberships in specific special interest sections, such as Orthopedics, Cardiopulmonary, and Acute Care physical therapy. 

Our physical therapists volunteer within the Penobscot Valley Hospital organization through various activities including the PVH Healthcare Career Summer Day Camp, 10,000 Step Per Day Challenge, Walking Lunch Break series, Lincoln Walking Trails events, and through a free program offered several times a year called Healthy ME, which provides access to experts free of charge to community members working to lose weight or maintain weight loss.
