Physical Therapy services are performed to help clients who are limited with performance of their daily activities by a loss of motion, strength, balance, or mobility. Our therapists use a client-centered approach so our patients can feel fully engaged in the rehabilitation process from the initial assessment, treatment, and eventually discharge. It is our goal to return our clients to life at home, work, or on the competitive field of sports where they can perform both at their best level.
Occupational Therapy helps to restore motion, strength, and dexterity in the upper extremity, but it focuses mainly on restoring a patient's ability to complete the tasks of their daily life that define who they are. Our therapists motivate patients through patient education and actively involving them in the treatment process so they feel fully engaged in their rehabilitation process.

Work injuries require a clear understanding of orthoapedics but also the physical requirements of each worker's job. Our clinic not only provides a comprehensive approach to the injured worker, but we care about getting them back to their life.
Spine injuries can be complex. Effective treatment of any spine condition requires a therapist to take time to provide a thorough assessment of the individual in order to fully understand their condition and how it is impacting their life. Treatment planning must involve both the therapist and patient in order to address all areas of life impacted by their condition and complaints.
Our therapist will provide a comprehensive evaluation of each patient referred to our clinic with a spinal condition and will collaborate with the patient to formulate a plan of treatment to address all their needs. Treatment may include therapeutic exercises, dry needling, manual therapy techniques (joint and soft tissue mobilization), modalities (electrical stimulation, ultrasound, etc) as well as the use of mechanical traction.
