Our Services

Physical Therapy

Our highly-trained therapist staff utilize a variety of therapy techniques to create a customized individual care plan to give you the advantage and comfort during the recovery process.  We start off with an in-depth evaluation and take time out to have a personal conversation with you to listen to your needs.  Our therapist focus on restoring your mobility and reducing your pain. Over the course of the sessions our techniques help target the root cause of the pain and we systematically work to fix the injuries.  We understand your independence is greatly driven by your mobility so aim to keep you moving.

Outside of using modern equipment and technology our therapist use their hands-on techniques to help you stretch and reduce stiffness in the areas you have pain.  As you start recovering the plan of care changes to help you improve your balance, everyday functions and improve your mobility.  Some of the benefits our patients report from our sessions include:

  • Increased strength and flexibility

We start off with an individualized and custom evaluation where we work with you to understand what your goals are from receiving therapy sessions.  We work together with you to put together the plan of care and as sessions are held we evaluate the progress and adjust where needed.  Often times we may even need to do an evaluation of your home or other environments to recommend best practice preventive measures to avoid further injury.  You are a key part of the therapy team so we take our time and dedicate ourselves to making sure we provide high quality care.

Hand Therapy

No matter what you do the hand is an essential part of the body which we use in all apsects of our daily life.  We often do not realize how valuable the functions of the hand are in performing daily tasks whether at home, work or during leisure activities.  However, when the hand and upper extremity are injured due to either an accident, disease, syndromes, birth conditions or stress we need to take a specialized approach to help you recover.

Hand therapy focuses in on rehabilitation of the hand and upper limbs and is the merging of occupational therapy and physical therapy theory and practice. Our highly skilled physical and occupational therapists are certified hand therapists who are proficient in the treatment of hand and upper extremity pathologies, from the acute to the chronic.

Often times the following conditions can be treated with hand therapy:

  • Tendon injuries
  • Peripheral nerve injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Repetitive motion disorder

Balance Therapy

Balance problems make it difficult for people, often times older individuals, to maintain stable and upright positions when standing, walking, and even sitting.  A balance problem exists when an individual has difficulty maintaining a stable and upright position.  They may experience tripping, swaying, stumbling, dizziness, vertigo, and falling.

Our therapist teams will help you develop individualized physical activity plans to help improve your strength, stability, and mobility.  Our team is trained to evaluate multiple systems of the body, including the muscles, joints, inner ear, eye tracking ability, skin sensation, and position awareness in the joints (proprioception).

Our team can help you:

  • Reduce fall risk
  • Reduce fear of falling
  • Improve mobility
  • Improve balance
  • Improve strength
  • Improvement movement
  • Improve flexibility
  • Improve activity levels

Foot & Ankle

Most of us are on our feet for a good part of the day. No matter whether you are going around the house, going to work or participating in some activities our feet are always being used. One of the most common injuries related to our feet are ankle sprains. Ankle sprains impact numerous ligaments around the ankle when they are forced into a position not normally encountered. Ankle sprains can be classified in three severity categories depending on the injury. Our therapist will evaluate your injury, assess the severity grade it falls under and based on that propose the correct care plan.

Outside of the ankle our feet are part of the body that bears the most weight, so it is not uncommon to suffer from foot pain or diagnosed foot problems at some point in your life. Many of these problems can be fixed with the proper exercises and massage to the feet.

Some key techniques are therapist are trained in are:

  • Foot strengthening exercises
  • Resistance foot and ankle inversiona and eversion exercises
  • Range of motion stretching
  • Plantar flexion, dorsiflexion & achilles stretch
  • Foot massage and pressure points

Post Wound Care

The time after surgery can be a tough time especially if the surgeon closes your wound with stitches, staples, butterfly bandages (flexible skin-closure tapes), or adhesive glue. You need to take very good care of the wound otherwise there might be a risk for infection. If you have dressing on your wound you will usually need to change it every 1 to 2 days and also inspect the wound for redness, weeping, swelling or other problems.

Depending on your condition taking care of a wound post surgery may become difficult to manager. Our experts are trained on how to handle in a sanitary method to un-dress, examine and re-dress your wound. This process is key to the recovery process so you want to make sure you have a professional helping you along the way. Our team will also provide tips on how to keep the dressing dry, clean and intact until your next session.
