Physical therapy helps reduce pain and restore function and independence in patients who have undergone surgery, suffered an injury, are recovering from serious illness or are coping with a chronic condition.

Our physical therapists provide comprehensive treatment, combining exercise and strength training with manual therapy and modalities to develop an individualized treatment plan that meets the unique needs of each patient.

Treatment begins with a physician's prescription and a comprehensive evaluation by an experienced physical therapist. Therapist and patient then work on-on-one, following a specific plan of care designed to help the patient return to work and normal daily activities as quickly and safely as possible.

Physical Therapy treats a variety of conditions and diagnoses, including, but not limited to:

  • Back and neck pain relief and prevention
  • Strains, sprains, and fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Joint and soft tissue injuries
  • Stroke or Parkinson's disease
  • Workplace injuries
  • Repetitive stress disorders
  • Sports injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Incontinence and pelvic floor weakness
  • Joint replacements
  • Balance disorders
