Physical Therapy at Dayani

At the Vanderbilt Dayani Center for Health and Wellness, our physical therapists customize a therapy plan for you, no matter how unique or complex your diagnosis.

Physical therapy at the Dayani Center can help you recover and regain function from a variety of conditions, including cancer, lymphedema, full-body arthritis, chronic pain and voice disorders. We offer specialized programming for patients undergoing transplantations such as liver and bone marrow transplants, and physical therapy for those with hypermobility syndromes, including Ehlers Danlos, POTS, and long COVID. Our physical therapists also provide prehabilitation programs for patients undergoing treatment for ovarian and breast cancer and cystectomy.

You must have a referral from your doctor to see one of our therapists.
