Acute Injury Rehabilitation

PTs are experts in managing acute injuries. We are trained in identifying and applying appropriate interventions to minimize recovery time and get patients on the path to feeling better. Some examples of acute injuries are:

  • Traumatic fracture
  • Sprains/strains
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Low back injuries
  • Sports related injuries

Chronic Injury Rehabilitation

In many cases, patients experience injuries or impairments that last months and years, resulting in a gradual decline in function and rise in pain. Physical therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment tool for chronic pain. Our team gives patients the attention and education to manage pain, understand their bodies response to prolonged discomfort, and help them return to everyday life. Some examples of chronic injuries are:

  • Arthritic joint pain
  • Soft tissue restrictions
  • Postural dysfunction
  • Overuse injuries
  • Tendinopathies

Pre and Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Physical therapy is an integral component of pre and post surgical programs. We strive to work closely with your surgeon and medical team to manage care and optimize outcomes. Our therapists have the knowledge of surgical procedures and the necessary training to safely guide patients on the road to recovery. Some examples of common pre and post-op surgeries we work with are:

  • Rotator cuff repairs
