Physical, Speech, Occupational Therapy & Sports Medicine

We provide physical, occupational and speech therapy services. Our therapists provide both inpatient and outpatient therapy, allowing the patient to go from hospitalized therapy to outpatient therapy without interruption, and with a greater continuity in care.

Physical Therapy
It has been said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We agree! That's why we offer a variety of injury prevention programs. From athletes to industry, we can help decrease the risk of injury while promoting better health.

Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy involves the evaluation, assessment, and treatment of upper body dysfunctions caused by medical disorders and injuries and trauma. Our goal is to enhance your quality of life by addressing activities of daily living and by promoting your independence and well-being.

Driving Simulation
The Comprehensive Driver Assessment consists of clinical testing, use of a driving simulator and in-vehicle evaluation administered by a qualified Occupational Therapist. This process will determine the extent of disabilities as well as how they impact the ability to drive safely. Our evaluation is intended to address your needs with a wide range of physical,visual and/or cognitive assessment. We share your goal to be a safe and successful driver.

Speech Therapy
Speech Language Pathologists are trained in helping adults correct communication disorders, develop or restore understanding or expression of language, as well as the treatment of swallowing and voice disorders. They customize treatment for each individuals needs. Training in the use of augmentative and alternative communication systems is provided when a person is no longer able to communicate by speaking or writing. Speech and Language Therapy services are available through outpatient services, as well as during hospital stays.

Therapy services are often needed for, or as a result of: swallowing difficulties, language disorders, speech disorders, stroke, brain injury, voice disorders and Parkinson's Disease and ALS.

Sports Medicine
Providing comprehensive sports-based programs to treat and prevent injury, aid recovery and enhance performance. Our experienced and dedicated healthcare team helps athletes in all sports not only stay at the top of their form, but also realize their full potential. We offer specialized services and state-of-the-science equipment and treatment techniques to help athletes attain full recovery and achieve optimal performance.

Womens Health
Womens Health is a specialized area of physical therapy practice that focuses on treating conditions that primarily tend to affect women. Our highly skilled therapists offer vast clinical experience and extensive manual skills. This means that you can be assured of receiving the best possible therapy, matched up with an exceptional therapist best suited to meet your individual needs.

Incontinence
You are not alone. A gradual loss of bladder control or bowel movements commonly occurs in women and is directly related to muscle control and strength of the pelvic floor. This can occur with pregnancy or post-partum. An evaluation is available to assess tone, symmetry, sensation and strength. The primary goal of treatment is to increase function and quality of life for each patient.

Pelvic Pain
There is relief. There are many causes of pelvic pain, which include pelvic floor weakness and related hip dysfunctions. These are easily treated by physical therapy. Stretching and flexibility exercises, patient education, biofeedback treatment, as well as manual therapy techniques are successful methods of relief.

Osteoporosis
Physical therapy can offer exercise strength and flexibility instruction. Our goal is to promote improved posture, spinal stability, and increased bone density through exercise. Instruction in modified body mechanics will be offered to minimize your risk of injury during daily activities and recreation. If you have pain present, physical therapy treatment can minimize discomfort and offer you options for the self-management of pain.

Post-Partum Care
Our post-partum care includes repetitive stress injuries, rib pain, rectus diastasis (separation of stomach muscles), carpal tunnel syndromes, shoulder impediment, and pain secondary to breastfeeding postures.

Pregnancy Issues
We can help. Back, neck, hip, and pubic bone pain, as well as sciatica, rectus diastasis (separation of stomach muscles), leg cramps, foot pain, and tingling in the arms and legs does not have to be a normal part of pregnancy or post-partum. Physical therapists are able to assess and treat much of the pain and discomfort associated with pregnancy. With education early in pregnancy regarding posture, stretching and positioning, many of the symptoms can be significantly alleviated or prevented all together. We can help you stay healthy and learn exercises safely through pregnancy and post-partum to increase spinal stability and prevent symptoms. We will work to make you comfortable through your pregnancy and afterward.
