Whether you are recovering from a cardiac event, stroke, or injury, our licensed Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists work with patients to develop an individually tailored program that not only focuses on attaining independence but returning to full function, health and wellness.
Physical Therapists and Physical Therapy Assistants guide patients from illness or injury back to strong and productive lives. We take an effective “hands-on” approach to treatment, using individualized, comprehensive exercise programs and state-of-the-art therapeutic modalities to relieve pain and restore function.
Skilled therapists provide high-quality care to patients with orthopedic and post-surgical conditions, neurological and balance impairments, persistent pain, work-related injuries and women's health issues such as lymphedema and urinary incontinence.

Patient and family education plays an important role in our treatment plans. Therapists offer advice on proper posture, body mechanics, and fitness topics. And ongoing collaboration with physicians and other health-care professionals ensures that Wellness Center clients receive maximum benefit from our holistic approach to therapy.
Occupational Therapists work to meet the needs of clients with physical and cognitive challenges. Our goal is to help each patient achieve optimal performance in the activities of daily living (ADL) including dressing, grooming, bathing, food preparation, eating, and community re-entry activities. We also help patients recover the ability to perform functions that are specific to their individual lives.
