Our staff’s specialty training and experience providing physical, occupational and speech therapies truly sets us apart.
Physical Therapy (PT) Helps Regain Function
Whether your problem is a result of injury or disease, the role of a physical therapist is to help you return to maximal function. Physical therapists also work with you to prevent loss of mobility by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
Occupational Therapy (OT) Helps with Everyday Activities
Occupational therapy focuses on your ability to perform the broad range of everyday life activities. OT promotes independence by improving the skills required to perform these activities and/or teaching alternative ways to accomplish them.
Based on a thorough evaluation, the therapist will create a customized treatment plan designed to improve skills and maximize functional abilities based on your priorities and personal goals. The therapist will consider your physical, psychological and social well-being as well as environmental factors when developing a plan of care and treatment. Occupational therapy helps individuals regain day-to-day skills such as dressing and feeding.
Speech and Language Therapy Helps Regain Independence
Speech and language therapy helps individuals improve breathing, speaking, or swallowing functioning. Speech therapy focuses other ability to understand words and the ability to use words to express yourself.
