Physical Therapy now available in Sparta
Gundersen Health System is always looking for opportunities to provide care close to home. On Jan. 9, Gundersen began offering physical therapy for the first time in Sparta. Care is available at the new 35,000-square foot Gundersen Sparta Clinic at 1111 West Wisconsin Street (State Highway 16).

Appointments are available Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. to help individuals with:
- Back, neck and extremity pain
- Post-operative rehabilitation
- Stroke, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease
- General weakness
- Falls prevention (balance, walking)
Recovering from an illness or injury can be a long, frustrating process. At Gundersen, Physical Therapist Candace Hundt, DPT, CLT; Krysta Millis, DPT; and Becky Ortiz, PTA; will work closely with you and your family to set and meet rehabilitation goals through evaluation, treatment, education and follow-up care.
"Our new space includes state-of-the-art equipment, private treatment rooms – including accommodations for bariatric and geriatric patients – and an open gym area," Candace describes. "It's so bright and open, too. It's a great space for providing and receiving care."
Candace adds, "Personally, it is beyond a great reward to help people feel better, reduce their pain and enable them to, as much as possible, return to their daily activities."
A physician referral is needed for physical therapy services. For more information, call the Clinic at (608) 269-6731.
Help for your heart too
"In addition to physical therapy, we've expanded our services to offer expert care for heart problems," explains Dave Campbell, manager, Gundersen Sparta Clinic.
The Clinic is now home to Cardiac rehabilitation, which focuses on exercise training, education and counseling for people who have heart problems. Gundersen staff will develop a program aimed at improving your overall health and reducing your risk of future heart problems.
