What is Outpatient Physical Therapy? 

Outpatient physical therapy is a form of rehabilitation therapy provided to patients who visit a clinic, hospital, or physical therapy office without needing an overnight stay. This type of therapy is designed for individuals who are recovering from injuries, surgeries, or dealing with chronic conditions but can still move around and don’t require intensive, round-the-clock care.

The primary goal is to improve mobility, reduce pain, and enhance overall quality of life through various therapeutic exercises, treatments, and education.

Our Process


Upon their initial visit to Lyons Physical Therapy offices in one of our Las Vegas area locations, our patients begin by completing the necessary paperwork covering their injury history, past medical history, and current pain levels.

Following this, patients undergo a comprehensive examination and evaluation by one of Lyons’ licensed physical therapists. This process includes a series of tests to identify your injury’s root cause. The physical therapist will also review the patient’s medical records, including diagnostic images and reports from other physicians.



Based on the information gathered from the patient’s history, medical records, and examination, our PTs will formulate a working diagnosis and develop a tailored treatment plan to address the patient’s specific injuries.

Outpatient Physical Therapy FAQ

Inpatient and outpatient physical therapy are two primary forms of rehabilitation services, differing primarily in the setting and intensity of care provided.

Inpatient Physical Therapy occurs when patients receive therapy services within a hospital or a specialized rehabilitation facility where they are admitted for an overnight stay. This type of therapy is often required for individuals who have undergone major surgery, experienced a severe injury, or are dealing with a significant medical condition that requires intensive rehab and round-the-clock medical attention. The goal of inpatient therapy is to help patients regain enough function and stability to safely transition to a lower level of care, such as returning home or moving to outpatient therapy. Inpatient therapy typically involves multiple therapy sessions daily and can include many therapeutic disciplines beyond physical therapy, such as occupational and speech therapy.

On the other hand, Outpatient Physical Therapy is designed for patients who can live at home and travel to a clinic or hospital for therapy sessions. This type of therapy is suitable for individuals who are recovering from less severe injuries or surgeries or those managing chronic conditions who do not require intensive supervision. Outpatient therapy allows patients to maintain their daily routines, including work and personal activities while attending scheduled therapy sessions. These sessions usually focus on specific therapeutic exercises, pain management techniques, and education to help patients improve their mobility, strength, and overall function.

The main differences between inpatient and outpatient physical therapy lie in the level of care intensity, the patient’s medical condition, and the setting in which therapy is provided. Inpatient therapy is more intensive and for patients with serious health issues who need constant medical care. In contrast, outpatient therapy offers flexibility and independence for those in less critical conditions or the later stages of their rehabilitation.
