St. Vincent Health

Looking toward the future, St. Vincent General Hospital District has embraced the concept of a health campus where specialists, primary care, Lake County Public Health Agency, and other health-related offices reside in the old hospital building and synergistically complement services in the adjacent, new hospital facility.

St. Vincent Health Physical Therapy

We are passionate about keeping you in motion

Doctors of Physical Therapy are specialists in the intricate relationship of the body systems and structures that control how we move. Physical therapy (PT) is hands-on, collaborative care between a patient and a practitioner that aims to ease pain and help a person function, move, and live better. It can both prevent and heal chronic or acute injury. The St. Vincent, PT clinic offers traditional therapies along with new innovations for healing, pain management, injury prevention, physical conditioning and fitness.

It’s helpful to know that in 2015, Colorado became a direct access state, which means that obtaining a referral from a physician or other healthcare provider for PT isn’t required to receive care.

Services include:

  • Inpatient and outpatient care
  • Sports medicine & rehabilitation
  • Concussion management
  • Pre and post-surgical treatment
  • Dry needling
  • Balance training
  • Vertigo & dizziness
  • Weightlifting technique
  • Cardiac rehabilitation
  • Running analysis
  • Conditioning classes
  • Osteoporosis management

St. Vincent Health’s Physical Therapists, Kelly Bergkessel – PT, DPT, COMT and Terri Handy, PT, ACT, MTC are dedicated healers who advance their skills with equal parts science and art in a culture of caring.

Weekend hours are available. The PT clinic offers one-on-one 45-minute appointments and individualized care.
