Welcome to Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, the U.S. Navy's "First and Finest" Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Department. Documented data of the Physical therapy Department (then Physiotherapy) exists as early as 1929. It appears that Physical Therapy has traditionally been a very busy department. In 1929, 14,000 treatments were recorded for that year. Treatment classifications included manual therapy, exercise, electrotherapy, thermotherapy and hydrotherapy. We have come a long way in the past 70 plus years and continue to be one of the busiest clinics at the NMCP logging over 48,000 treatments annually.
