Physical & Occupational Therapy Services 

Sports Therapy

This program's foundation rests on the analysis of the athlete's movement patterns, with needed corrections accomplished through functional, sports-specific training and exercise. Much emphasis is placed on the prevention of injury to the at-risk female sports participant.

Back Pain Treatment

Even after extensive workup, only 15% of patients with LBP can be given a definitive diagnosis. Never the less, studies show that programs that incorporate correction of Sacroiliac dysfunction and core strengthening/stabilization exercise have a high rate of success, even with chronic patients. We have been using such an approach since late 2008 with strong outcomes.

Falls Prevention

This program's focus is on balance and gait assessment with the development of corrective exercises that the patient should continue with at home. We encourage family and/or caregiver participation. PT evaluation is recommended for all elderly patients who have fallen twice in the last 6 months without a clear explanation such as medication intolerance or slips on ice.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) usually relieves symptoms in 1-2 visits. Therapy for unilateral vestibular hypofunction (from an inner ear infection, labyrinth artery ischemia, etc.) typically responds well to habituation exercise in 3-6 weeks. Exercises for bilateral vestibular disorders (from an auto-immune disease, aminoglycoside toxicity, etc.) generally results in significant, but incomplete, improvement.

Lymphedema Management

Our program employs a systematic, research-based approach utilizing four elements: manual massage/drainage, bandaging, exercise, and skincare. Consistent and lasting edema control follows 4-6 weeks of treatment. Daily patient self-bandaging is required during therapy; a pressure garment at discharge maintains gains.

Occupational Therapy

Craniosacral and Somatic Therapy

These techniques enhance healing in the nervous system and body. They tend to be particularly appropriate for patients with TMJ, fibromyalgia, migraines, Bell's palsy, neck/back pain, and many other chronic conditions..

Hand Therapy

This program offers activities and exercises to improve/restore fine motor function in the wrists and hands following the onset of injury, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, stroke, and TBI.

Vision Therapy

This program offers the evaluation and treatment of deficits in eye teaming, visual pursuits, visual field, and motor occulo coordination. Brain injuries and chronic conditions such as diabetes, macular degeneration, and cataracts can be the source of these deficits

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy takes advantage of the properties of water such as buoyancy, resistance, and hydrostatic pressure, to promote overall fitness and rehabilitation to those who are unable to tolerate traditional land-based therapy programs.

Aquatic Therapy complements these traditional therapy programs and often can improve patient's mobility, range of motion, and strength at a much faster rate, therefore, maximizing function. The water provides a unique environment for individuals suffering from chronic pain, muscle spasms, decreased range of motion, and limited weight-bearing. Licensed Physical and Occupational Therapists develop a customized treatment plan specific to each individual's needs. A physician referral is required.
