Physical & Occupational Therapy

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy services help individuals increase their functional abilities and independence so they can participate more fully in all aspects of life. Therapy services assist to:

  • Facilitate motor activity and learning
  • Increase strength and endurance
  • Improve balance and coordination
  • Increase range of motion
  • Relieve pain

Many people with developmental, physical and health-related disabilities can benefit from physical therapy.

Physical therapists can also evaluate and make recommendations for a variety of adaptive equipment to address needs for mobility, seating and positioning, and activities of daily living.

Services

We believe in a hands-on approach to therapy. Physical therapy practitioners work one-to-one with each participant. During an initial evaluation, the therapist and participant identify goals that can be addressed through physical therapy. The individualized treatment plan is modified as skills progress.
