Physical therapy and rehabilitation can be a vital tool in treating chronic conditions such as arthritis and neurologic disorders, or aide in recovery from an injury or surgical procedure. Physical therapy and rehabilitation can increase a patient’s mobility, muscle mass, coordination, and nerve function resulting in less pain, discomfort and improved quality of life.
Initiating therapy immediately after a surgery can dramatically shorten recovery times, returning a patient to normal function sooner and reducing the chance of complications post op. Structured exercises and treatments designed to meet a patient’s specific needs will be prescribed and performed over a series of sessions. Our staff will carefully document progress and as well as areas that need improvement.
