|Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation|
Physical therapy evaluation for each patient to determine baseline clinical data in order to monitor progress, establish an appropriate treatment plan, and to help motivate the patient towards recovery.
Exercise to improve fitness and restore function with the ultimate goal of preventing recurrence of injury. Individualized programs are designed for each patient according to age, fitness level, and diagnosis. The program addresses flexibility, strength, and endurance. Home exercise programs are utilized to facilitate the patient’s progress with their rehabilitation program. We want patients to take home what they learned in the clinic in order to continue with an independent program to reduce the risk of re-injury. We believe that physical fitness should be a lifetime commitment.
