Our specially designed therapeutic pool helps reduce stress on joints, ease discomfort during exercise, and improve physical function, muscle tone, balance and cardiovascular performance. The pool is heated between 92-96 degrees for buoyancy and divided into varying heights so patients can exercise comfortably. A hydraulic lift provides easy access for individuals of all abilities.
Following a thorough evaluation, our therapists work with you on a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan that may include a variety of occupational, physical, speech, cognitive, neuropsychological and other therapies.
You’ll receive the utmost respect and care on your journey to regaining as much language, memory, problem solving, cognitive functions and physical mobility as possible.
Our physical therapy team has extensive experience working with patients recovering from a wide variety of orthopedic injuries and surgeries.
Collaborating closely with your orthopedic physician or surgeon, we use the latest treatment techniques to reduce pain, facilitate a smooth recovery and enable you to get back on track as quickly as possible.
Our specially trained physical therapists effectively treat pelvic floor disorders, restore proper organ function and enhance your quality of life. This is performed through therapeutic manipulation of pelvic tissues, muscles, ligaments and joints.
This form of physical therapy helps to increase strength, improve range of motion, release tension and relieve pain.
Playing sports or engaging in any physical activity involves a certain amount of risk. The more physically challenging the game, sport or activity, the higher the risk of injuries. We think preventing an injury is better than having to recover from one. That’s why we provide educational services focused on injury prevention for your specific sport.
Depending upon your needs, we may use our unique aquatic environment and/or gym to help you reach your desired goal. Whether you are dealing with a chronic illness or a recent injury, we can help you recover lost function, decrease your fall risk and improve your quality of life.
Physical and cognitive abilities required for daily living, including eating, bathing and dressing. Our therapists can assist you in developing, improving, sustaining or restoring independence if you have experienced an injury, illness or disability.
This is especially valuable if you are recovering from a stroke, brain injury or orthopedic surgery.
Speech therapy can help you improve your ability to produce and understand language, including speaking, listening, reading, writing, organizing and solving problems.
We assist with speech impediments (such as stuttering), hearing loss, mental disabilities and medical conditions (such as cerebral palsy). Speech therapy is especially helpful if your abilities are impaired due to a stroke, head injury or other neurological diseases.
Our team of highly experienced physical, occupational and speech therapists tailor one-on-one treatment sessions based on your goals, whether it’s to ski a black diamond run again, go back to work or play with your grandkids.
