Therapy Services

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapists are health care professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives.  We treat a variety of conditions including, but not limited to, pain, edema, pelvic floor dysfunction, balance, vestibular, developmental delay, muscular and skeletal conditions, and neurological conditions.

PTs examine each individual and develop a plan using proven treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists help patients to perform the many normal activities of bathing and dressing safely and independently, managing household tasks and on-the-job activities. Our goal is to assist patients to recover as much functional ability as possible, including visual, cognitive, and general coordination skills. Therapists help patients adapt and modify the environment to enhance their ability to function in their physical and social environments. They work on strength, endurance, range of motion, coordination and balance, memory, and orientation.

Our speech-language pathologists work to assess and treat communication and swallowing disorders in adults and children which can include:

  • Cognition
  • Language
  • Reading
  • Social Skills
  • Speech Sounds
  • Stuttering
  • Swallowing
