Our professional staff includes licensed and certified therapists and athletic trainers. They participate in continuing education to keep current with the latest modalities in rehab.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy (PT) restores maximum physical functioning and enables the individual to return to an active life as quickly as possible. The aim of a PT program is to restore movement and function, relieve pain, and prevent further illness and injury. Physical therapists evaluate and treat problems with moving, balance, strength, and conditioning. PT can be beneficial for people who have problems caused by burns, cancer, chronic pain, general rehabilitation issues, and balance disorders.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy (OT) helps the individual maximize independence and safety in daily living in the areas of self-care, leisure, and work. OT is skilled treatment that helps individuals achieve independence in all facets of their lives. Occupational therapy gives people the "skills for the job of living" that are needed for independent and satisfying lives. Services typically include customized treatment programs aimed at improving abilities to carry out the activities of daily living, comprehensive evaluation of home and job environments and recommendations on necessary adaptation, and guidance for family members and caregivers.

Speech/Language Therapy

Speech and language therapy helps a person improve communication and cognitive abilities as well as build confidence and greater independence. Dedicated to providing quality Speech Therapy Services, the therapists develop individualized programs to meet the needs of each patient. These programs include specialized feeding programs for persons with swallowing problems, language stimulation programs for children with speech and language delays, and language programs to improve speech and articulation. through adults exhibiting speech, language, hearing, feeding, voice, fluency and cognitive impairments.
