Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists evaluate and treat orthopedic, neurological and general deconditioning due to medical, surgical, cardiac and respiratory conditions. The Physical Therapist utilizes therapeutic exercise to maximize strength, balance, transfers and walking ability. Modalities such as heat, cold, ultrasound and electrical stimulation are used for pain management. Physical Therapy is an integral part of our specialized Total Joint Replacement Program.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists provide assessment and development of a plan of care for improvement of perceptual motor skills and upper body strengthening to increase abilities for Activities of Daily Living. These activities include dressing, bathing, transferring, eating, cooking and housekeeping. The Occupational Therapist makes recommendations for appropriate adaptive equipment and provides training and teaching for safety, self pacing and energy conservation.
