Pediatric Services

Our pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapists are knowledgeable in the developmental milestones that are normally attained at each stage in a child’s life.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy assists in restoring strength, balance, and control. The primary goals of therapy are to reduce pain and to increase strength, range of motion, and muscular control. Effective physical therapy allows the patient to live as independently as possible in order to return to work and to enjoy sports and everyday functional activities.

Sports Physical Therapy

This type of physical therapy emphasizes rehabilitation and performance enhancement. Sports physical therapists also work with athletes in the area of injury prevention.

Speech-Language Pathology

Speech-language pathology assists to improve speech and language challenges caused by illness or injury that may have affected expression, comprehension, hearing, sound production, and articulation. Difficulties with swallowing may also occur due to stroke, cancer treatments, or Parkinson’s disease. Speech therapy provides innovative techniques and strategies that improve a patient’s quality of life.

Women’s Health Services

Physical therapists are trained to evaluate and treat common conditions in the area of women’s health, such as pelvic weakness and pain, incontinence, pregnancy-related pain, and postpartum issues.
