PHYSICAL THERAPY

GET UP AND GO

Pain-free movement is important to your quality of life, your ability to earn a living and your overall independence. Our physical therapists are movement experts who can identify and treat movement problems. They work together with each client to design a treatment plan for each person's individual goals, challenges and specific needs. Our PTs treat problematic hips, knees, ankles, feet, necks and backs. No matter what your ailment, we help you decrease your pain and Move Again!

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

BE INDEPENDENT AGAIN

Occupational therapy helps our clients perform their activities of daily living as independently as possible. These activities range from self care tasks, to employment or school work requirements. Focusing primarily on shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands, occupational therapists help our clients live life to the fullest. Our OTs also educate and train caregivers on ways they can assist in the client's recovery if the need requires. The goal of occupational therapy is to help each client reach his or her maximum level of functional independence.

SPEECH THERAPY

THINK, SPEAK AND SWALLOW

Speech therapy does much more than simply teaching people how to speak again. Our Speech-Language Pathologists evaluate and treat speech, language, communication and swallowing disorders. They also provide training and education to family, caregivers and other treatment professionals. If you're having trouble speaking, swallowing, or using the correct words when you speak, then our team may be able to help you!

FALL RISK ASSESSMENTS AND 

CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT

We provide objective fall risk screenings to identify persons at risk of falling by comparing their balance test results to age-dependent normative data. For those identified to be at risk, we start them on a balance training program customized to their specific needs. Our custom protocols are designed to improve each individual's balance and safety with ambulation and thereby decrease their risk of falling.  


We are also equipped to provide concussion management services to high schools, college and professional sports teams to unravel the mystery of concussion by implementing best practices that combine cognitive testing and a quantifiable re-conditioning program.
