Our Physical Therapy providers (PT) specialize in examination, evaluation, diagnosis and intervention targeting impairments associated with mobility, strength, functional ability and quality of life. Choosing a quality therapy provider is a critical decision in order to reduce pain and improve mobility quickly and safely. Effective physical therapy services are successful in reducing recovery times, avoiding surgical intervention, reducing healthcare costs and preventing future injuries.
Collaboration with Occupational Therapists is common among our team to improve patient outcomes and better address the needs of the whole person.

Fall Prevention Program
Injuries related to falls are one of the leading causes of hospitalizations and mortality in the senior population. According to the CDC, over 800,000 seniors are hospitalized each year with a fall related injury and over 95% of hip fractures are related to falls. Balance, strength and coordination are integral parts of our fall prevention program aimed at reducing an individual’s risk of sustaining a life threatening falls. Improvements in these areas have been shown to significantly decrease our patients risk of falling and allow them to confidently return to a normal routine.
We frequently utilize resources from the American Physical Therapy Association to improve our practice and stay in the loop with current news & peer reviewed education material.
