Services      Physical & Occupational Therapy

Physical & Occupational Therapy

Our comprehensive rehabilitation services provide personalized, healing therapies in a comfortable and accessible environment. Our dedicated staff represents more than 150 years of combined experience in licensed therapies, including clinical expertise in spinal, orthopedic, geriatric, neurological, vestibular and hand conditions.

Education and goal‑setting are two keys to successful rehabilitation. We assign patients a single therapist throughout the course of treatment to ensure consistency of care and a personal, one‑on‑one relationship.

Inpatient services

With every hospital patient, our goal is to maximize an individual’s functional level prior to discharge from the hospital. A treatment plan is developed by our staff collaboratively with the patient and/or family members and modified according to the individual’s abilities, overall health and discharge needs.

Outpatient services

Whether you are injured on the job or suffering from a musculoskeletal condition, our services are designed to improve your quality of life and help you regain confidence in accomplishing the basic activities of daily living after surgery, injury or illness.

In our outpatient clinic we provide the full range of therapeutic equipment including traction tables, electrical stimulation devices, ultrasound, light therapy, fluidotherapy and a therapy gym.

Your successful rehabilitation is our goal!


 Musculoskeletal Injuries

Often caused by poor posture, repetitive stress, trauma or disuse, the therapist will address the functional impairment to restore maximal strength and range of pain‑free movement.

 Post‑op Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Initial treatment targets pain management and swelling reduction. The gradual introduction of exercises will restore the range of motion, strength and function.

 Neurological Rehabilitation

Patients suffering from stroke, neuromuscular disease, head trauma and brain tumors receive a variety of treatment techniques aimed at restoring gross motor function and fine motor movements.

 Spinal Pain

We employ the proven technique known as the McKenzie Treatment Approach to evaluate and treat spinal pain. Active patient involvement enables patients to heal through a series of exercises while teaching them preventative strategies for posture and body mechanics.

 Dizziness and Balance Problems

Vestibular rehabilitation is a treatment method focused on diminishing dizziness and balance problems resulting from inner ear or central nervous system injuries, viruses or disorders.


Exercise and other treatment methods are employed to reduce joint pain and stiffness encountered by people suffering from arthritis.


Chronic and acute pain often leads to a loss of function. Our therapists evaluate the individual and design a custom treatment plan for pain reduction that emphasizes core strengthening, stretching and conditioning exercises.

 Worker’s Comp Injuries

Therapy services are provided according to a physician’s prescription for work‑related injuries upon authorization/approval of the claims manager.

 Infant Therapy

An infant who keeps his or her head tilted to one side may be experiencing a limited range of motion and have a condition called congenital torticollis. A series of stretching exercises and positioning techniques can help improve the range of motion and prevent positional head deformities.

 Wheelchair/Scooter Evaluations

Our therapists conduct a physical assessment and interview to determine the physical limitations and specific needs of the client in collaboration with the referring doctor and equipment vendor.

 Carpal Tunnel Rehabilitation

The goal of this treatment is to decrease pain in the wrist, hand and fingers caused by repetitive overuse, so that normal hand and wrist function can be regained.

 Tendon repair

After surgical intervention, our therapists follow the recommendations of the surgeon to implement a treatment program focused on the gradual restoration of range of movement, strength and function.

 Foot disorders

Plantar fasciitis, a painful inflammation in the heel, is one example of the types of foot disorders the Physical and Occupational Therapy Outpatient Clinic is able to treat.
