Physical therapists provide therapy to patients who have experienced neuromuscular, orthopedic and/or musculoskeletal dysfunctions. Professionally trained and licensed, they promote wellness, maintenance of good health and proper body mechanics in each patient. Our physical therapists use state-of-the-art equipment and therapy modalities in applying general scientific principles to prevent, identify, correct or compensate for specific dysfunctions. The goal is to maximize individual independence. Physical therapists often work with other therapeutic disciplines to provide comprehensive services when needed.

Occupational therapy is goal oriented therapy. It is structured to increase patient independence in those who have experienced a loss of ability caused by aging, illness, injury or developmental disability.

Occupational therapists excel in their ability to creatively adapt the environment to meet the individual’s needs.
