Since our inception, we’ve recognized the key role of therapy in our patients’ recovery. Our therapy team collaborates with our physicians to optimize your recovery.
Our therapists are dedicated to the well-being of our patients. We offer one-on-one care and work with you to craft a rehabilitation plan focused on your goals.
Our team of experts has vast experience working with:
- Youth, High School, College, and Professional Athletes
- Active adults
- Injured workers
- Older adults recovering from joint replacement surgery and working to maintain a high level of function.
Every patient receives a comprehensive evaluation by one of our licensed physical therapists. We then deploy an individualized treatment program helping you to gain strength, mobility, range of motion, decrease pain and ultimately return to full function. We maintain continuous communication with your referring physician about your progress.
Our therapists are highly trained in all aspects of musculoskeletal care. They are actively involved in continuing education as well as teaching at local community functions and collegiate settings.
Our staff also includes licensed physical therapy assistants (PTAs) who assist physical therapists in implementing the plan of care. They are an intricate part of the Physical Therapy team and have extensive knowledge in the areas of therapeutic exercise, functional activities and modalities like ultrasound and electrical stimulation.
