We offer a variety of therapeutic techniques, approaches and equipment in customizing each patient’s treatment regime. Your therapist will closely monitor your exercises and therapies and may prescribe a home exercise program to reinforce your treatment. In addition, we will show you techniques to prevent recurring injury and to maintain your renewed mobility.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps people learn or regain both physical and cognitive abilities to carry out the activities of daily living. These services can be especially valuable to persons recovering from a stroke or brain injury as well as those suffering from disorders like multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease. Following a thorough evaluation, our therapists work with each patient to help maximize skills and abilities. Often, these services make the difference that enables patients to live independently at home.

Our speech therapists work with patients to help improve the ability to speak, listen, read, write, organize and solve problems. Speech therapy can be especially helpful for patients whose abilities are impaired because of a stroke or head injury, those who suffer from speech impediments such as stuttering, patients who have suffered a hearing loss and those with a mental disability or a condition such as cerebral palsy.


What Exactly Is COPD?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common preventable and treatable disease. The condition is characterized by decreased airflow and difficulty breathing. The condition is usually progressive and often associated with an increased sensitivity in the airways and the lungs to noxious particles or gases like cigarette smoke, dust and automobile exhaust.
