Healthy Joints Program and Class
Do you have knee or hip stiffness and pain? Have you been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in these joints?
GHC offers two non-surgical options for you to choose from to help manage your symptoms and flare-ups.
The PT/OT Department is partnering with Sports Medicine, Health Education, and Complimentary Medicine to help patients with hip and knee arthritis. Patients will start with an in-person Physical Therapy Evaluation followed by a virtual Dietitian visit. These are done on Monday mornings.
If you are 46 or older, call 608-662-5060 to be screened and schedule an appointment.
Join Physical Therapists and a Registered Dietician for an interactive educational session (NOT an exercise class) about what you can do you manage your hip and knee arthritis pain. This session teaches the best evidence for managing and understanding your knee and hip arthritis through:
Understanding pain and how to manage it
A healthy diet
Exercise principles to keep you moving (NOT an exercise class)
Additional Services and classes are available through our Complementary Medicine Department to manage your symptoms.
You can sign up for this class by visiting the classes page here.

Urgent Care Physical Therapy at Capitol Clinic
If your injury occurred in the past two weeks, contact us at
608-662-5060 during normal business hours and after hours, please call Nurse connect at 608-662-7530 to determine if Urgent Care Physical Therapy is right for you. This service is only provided at our Capitol Clinic.
- Urgent Care PT provides same day or next day services for injuries that have occurred in the past two weeks.
- For most issues, you
do not need to see your Primary Care Provider (PCP) first. When you call to schedule an appointment, you will be transferred to a nurse who will screen your symptoms to determine if Urgent Care PT/OT is right for you.
- Therapists who work in Urgent Care PT/OT are trained to recognize injuries that are out of their scope of practice. If after completing an evaluation it is determined that you need a service that a PT or OT is unable to provide, the therapist will refer you to the appropriate medical provider.

Physical Therapy Classes
An individual appointment with a PT is required before beginning most PT classes. If you currently receive PT for a knee, ankle or back condition, an additional appointment may not be necessary.
Here are the classes we offer:
Hip and Knee Healthy Joints Class: Helping members struggling with Hip and Knee Arthritis (no need to see PT before this class)
Monday Evening Spine Stabilization Class (Beginner): Helping members with hip and back pain.
Tuesday and Thursday Afternoon Spine Stabilization Class (Advanced): Helping members with hip and back pain in a more aerobic-style class.
Stronger Together: Helping members with lower body strengthening to help them return to aerobic activity and sport after surgery or injury.
Please talk to your therapist or call 608-662-5060 to learn more. You can sign up for classes here.
Benefits of Therapy
Addressing your pain immediately after an injury occurs is important for preventing the development of persistent or disabling conditions. Prolonged pain can cause changes to your nervous system and your perception of pain which can make the pain feel more intense.
Our therapists will work with you to come up with a treatment plan that works best for you and will teach you how to be as independent as possible.
orders for PT are not required except for fractures, post-operative
care, filed workmen's comp claims, motor vehicle accidents, soft tissue or
tendon tears, neurological conditions such as balance disorders; and pelvic
orders for OT are required for all conditions before an evaluation can
take place. You
may request a PCP order for PT by calling your clinic or sending a GHCMyChartSM message to your
