Many isolated communities misunderstand the causation of chronic physical conditions which may resort to ostracizing and ridiculing the suffering. MMI’s Physical Therapy Program brings restoration to patients with physical limitations who often suffer on the fringes of society. We seek to provide these special people with compassionate care and a chance to function in their societies by correct many afflictions that can be addressed through proper therapy. These services include: consultations, assessments, fittings of walkers, wheelchairs and other assistive devices.
