Physical Therapy (PT)
Our Physical Therapists are skilled in treating individuals with a variety of injuries and disorders, as well as post surgical patients by using state of the art modalities and hands-on treatment techniques. We focus on increasing the patient's ability to function at home, school, work, or any other aspect of their life.
Physical Therapy focuses on gross motor skills, transfers, stairs, gait training with and without an assistive device, endurance and balance training, and other impairments of the upper and lower extremities and spine.
Our Physical Therapists also have great success preparing injured athletes to return to their favorite sports.
