Physical Therapy

Rehabilitation / Retraining Program

Our rehabilitative services help patients improve their level of function through increased strength and flexibility. We also help patients regain balance and improve their mobility, improving daily activity. Patients learn proper body mechanics so that lifting and movement is done safely.

Rehabilitation programs may involve use of equipment at the rehabilitation services clinic, or exercises we develop for you to do at home. Our staff will help establish an individualized exercise program specific to your condition and goals.

In addition to the physical aspects of rehabilitation, we provide mental and emotional support to cardiac patients who have heart problems and disease. We provide retraining to neurologic patients who have had stroke, head or spinal cord injury.

Pain Management

Pain comes with healing, rehabilitation, and retraining. We work with you to help reduce the pain while maintaining your progress. Our services include electrical stimulation, soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and stretching which help decrease muscle spasms and increase blood circulation to promote healing and maintain movement. We also provide chronic pain management through teaching techniques to manage chronic pain, education, individualized exercise programs, and some electrical stimulation and soft tissue mobilization.

Continuing Rehabilitation at Work and Home

We understand that once you leave the clinic there may be daily factors at work and home that can interfere with your rehabilitative progress. One of our therapists can go to your work site or home to help evaluate the set-up and your activity there. The therapist will then make recommendations that support your rehabilitation.

We prepare you to return to the workforce by teaching body mechanics such as proper lifting and postural techniques. This will help you decrease the possibility of re-injury.

If you are unable to travel to the clinic, your rehab can continue after your hospital stay with a regular visit from one of our physical therapists to your home. This ensures continuity of care so your progress will continue.
