Conditions Treated

We provide care for patients with disabling physical or neurological conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. We help people recover from orthopedic and sports-related surgeries or conditions such as joint replacement, arthritis or rotator cuff surgery. We treat specific speech-related disorders including aphasia, apraxia and dysphagia. And we also offer specialty programs designed specifically to treat conditions including lymphedema, COVID-19, and balance disorders.

Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy

Our goal is to help patients return to their prior functional status through specialized rehabilitation, including physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapists work with patients one-on-one to help them improve their functional movement. We evaluate each patient to determine the best course of therapy, and also provide education to help patients prevent further injury. Our therapists work with patients with neuromuscular conditions, musculoskeletal conditions, and acute medical problems.

Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists help patients get back to doing things in their everyday lives that we sometimes take for granted. This includes going to the bathroom, bathing, getting dressed, cooking and working. Our goal is to help them regain the ability to perform their everyday activities without help from others as much as possible.

Speech/Language Therapy

We help patients with speech, voice, language, cognitive and memory disorders improve their quality of life. Our speech therapists create personal plans for each patient with the goal of restoring functional and reliable communication. This includes evaluation, treatment and management of their particular condition.
