Physical Therapy Services

Our physical therapists provide care for adults recovering from the following common conditions, injuries, and procedures:

Speech–Language Pathology Services

We provide speech–language pathology services for adults with swallowing disorders, voice disorders, speech and language disorders, and cognitive disorders. These are often related to stroke, traumatic brain injury, or conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

Occupational Therapy Services

Occupational therapy is available for people with injuries or illnesses of the hand and upper extremity to regain strength, dexterity, and function. Treatments are provided for people healing from wounds, scars, amputations, fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains, and those diagnosed with hand arthritis, joint contracture, nerve injury, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and neurological disorders. We provide a variety of treatments, including custom splint fabrication, in which a hand therapist makes a molded splint to precisely fit your hand and to address your specific issue.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Services

Physical medicine and rehabilitation services are provided by board-certified physicians known as physiatrists. They are experts in diagnosing and caring for back, neck, and joint pain and injuries; sports injuries; lumbar muscle weakness; chronic tendon pain; and recovery from joint replacement and other orthopedic surgery.

Treatments include medications and injections as well as rehabilitation in the form of exercise, stretching, taping, and bracing.

If you have been diagnosed with a musculoskeletal condition, such as tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, acute knee pain, or frozen shoulder, our physiatrist is available for consultation and to provide joint and trigger-point injections to relieve pain. We also provide electromyography (EMG) studies, nerve conduction velocity (NCV) studies, and wheelchair consultations, and offer a prosthetic and orthotic clinic.
