“The moment you walk in the door, your path to wellness begins”

Helping you toward wellness is the primary goal of our Physical Therapists, PTA’s and Aides. We believe that from the moment you walk in the door your path toward wellness begins. To that end, we have designed a state-of-the-art facility to help you on your journey.

 

Covering over 13,000 square-feet, our main facility in South Bend was built to serve the needs of recovering patients and athletes of all skill levels.

To aid in your recovery, we installed the latest in therapeutic equipment, including:

• Nu-Step for total-body strengthening and cardio.

• AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill for running or walking with reduced impact.

• Core Stix for balance and strengthening.

• Cybex Orthotron for multijoint testing and rehabilitation.

• BAPS Boards for balance training.

• Gravitron and Stairmaster for strengthening.

To help enhance your athletic performance or to increase your overall fitness level, we constructed a complete fitness center equipped with:

• Stationary bikes, treadmills & stepmills.

• Variable Cybex and BodyMaster resistance equipment.

• Free weights.

“Once you’ve completed your therapy with McDonald, you can continue to use our facility as a gym”

You receive complete instruction on the safe use of each apparatus from your physical therapist, who will work with you personally to help you achieve your goals. Once you’ve completed your therapy with McDonald, you can continue to use our facility as a gym, so the machines you work on will be the same that helped you recover or improve in the beginning.

 

For the athletes, students, faculty, and staff at the University of Notre Dame, we offer use of our facility on campus. Our facility is located on the second floor of St. Liam Hall.
