Physical therapy

Physical therapy is an important part of treatment for patients with pain and/or movement dysfunction resulting from disability or disease. Through proper evaluation and treatment, physical therapy can minimize pain and disability and maximize functional potential.

Physical therapists also help promote a healthy lifestyle through education about preventing injuries and personal fitness.

Physical therapy may be recommended for:

  • Back and neck pain and injuries
  • Balance disorders
  • Orthopedic injuries and disorders
  • Pre- and post-operative care
  • Secondary headaches (those caused by an injury, infection or high blood pressure)
  • Sports- and work-related injuries

Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy is designed to help you complete daily activities, both at home and work. This type of therapy may involve helping students participate in school and social situations, or it may focus on helping adults regain skills lost after a stroke, injury or illness.

Our occupational therapy services include:

  • Assessment of living and/or working environment and adaptation recommendations
  • Treatment of traumatic or repetitive injuries of the hands and/or upper extremities

Speech therapy

Speech therapy is a type of rehabilitation designed to treat speech and language disorders. Speech therapists treat conditions such as physical speech disabilities, voice disorders, hearing loss and language delays.

Speech therapy may be recommended for:

  • Conditions affecting fluency, motor speech and voicing
  • Issues with language comprehension and usage
