Post Surgical Rehabilitation
Following an orthopedic or soft tissue surgical procedure, it is strongly recommended to follow up with Physical Therapy. Physical Therapy expedites ROM (Range of Motion), healing (through increased blood flow) and reduces swelling. The increase in blood flow also aids in pain management.

Lower Back and Spinal Injuries
The lower back plays a major role in everyday life as it bears the majority of your body’s weight. Therefore, it is easily injured when you lift, reach or twist. Spinal injuries can be attributed to traumatic injuries, a strength deficiency or genetic. All can be successfully treated to help improve one’s way of life.
Lower Extremity Injuries
Lower extremity injuries generally involve the knees, ankles and feet. Unfortunately, the human body relies upon all the lower extremity components to work in conjunction with one another. An injury creates instability, causing the body to compensate. Compensation alleviates pain and discomfort to the injured area but adds additional stress to the healthy joints and muscles. If the afflicted area is not treated promptly and efficiently the injury becomes more complex over time. Early diagnosis and treatment of lower extremity injuries is essential.
Orthopedic Assessments of Musculoskeletal Deficiencies
Orthopedic Assessments of Musculoskeletal Deficiencies assesses the biomechanics of movement dysfunctions due to muscle imbalances, muscle weakness, or muscle atrophy. We identify and define why the muscle imbalance or weakness may be occurring and how to correct it. Orthopedic Assessments of Musculoskeletal Deficiencies are included in your Initial Evaluation.
Our therapists perform Gait Analysis to identify irregularities in a patients walk and foot placement. We are then able to determine if these conditions create other more serious disabilities and how to correct the condition if necessary. Our rehabilitation center offers specific strength programs to improve gait performance.
Balance and Gait Disturbances
Balance and Gait Disturbances can be the cause to other more serious symptoms that patients suffer from. With proper diagnosis and treatment a more serious injury may be avoided or remedied. We offer programs to improve Balance and Gait Disturbances.
Osteoporosis Exercise Programs
Osteoporosis is a progressive disease that causes bones to become thin and porous, significantly increasing your risk for vertebrae and hip fractures. Hip fractures often require hospitalization, and vertebral fractures can cause loss of height and severe back pain. Both may lead to permanent disability. A supervised wellness routine recommended by our Physical Therapists can aid and help in the prevention of the conditions brought on by this debilitating disease.
