Besides various forms of physical rehabilitation, such as Aquatic Therapy (physical therapy in a heated pool), Therapeutic Exercise, and Vestibular Rehabilitation/Balance Training, we also provide various modalities to help reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation. These modalities include massage, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, iontophoresis, infrared light, traction, hot/cold packs, and Kinesio Taping.
AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill
By unloading a person’s body weight by 80%, the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill is a great way to relieve the joints in the lower extremities while being active. Patients with a wide variety of conditions can benefit from this NASA-developed technology. To learn more about how the AlterG works, its benefits, and pricing packages, click here.
Improving independence in your own mobility is not only a way to reduce the likelihood of a fall and/or a fracture, but also of helping to improve your quality of life. We will help you increase your mobility through activity and knowledge, and will provide advice for how to maintain mobility at home.
Aquatic therapy is perfect for those looking to ease into physical therapy, or who experience pain when moving. Our team has the knowledge and training to help you reach your physical therapy and health goals with the use of our aquatic therapy pool.
Our Endless Pool® is heated and has a variable speed underwater treadmill and water current generator. Therapy jets are also available to help alleviate pain. The pool also has a patient lift, making it easy for patients to get in and out of the pool, even those who experience limited mobility. These options add a whole new dimension to typical pool exercises. More information here.

Manual therapy is a hands-on approach to care, which allows the therapist to feel and treat the specific tissues affected. By incorporating joint mobilization, we can help you find relief and increased range of motion. Unlike a traditional massage, our therapists will help you improve muscle elasticity through proper stretching and kneading techniques.
Biodex Balance System SD
Our Biodex Balance System SD is a great tool for determining fall risks and for improving balance, postural control, and agility. It allows us to find potential balance issues and pinpoint the underlying causes.
The sense of balance comes from 3 major components: vision, vestibular input (inner ear), and proprioception (awareness of self in space). We are able to score these individual components and quantify their impact. From there, we can develop a treatment plan that’s customized to your needs. With different training protocols, the Biodex Balance System SD can also be used for treatment. Watch Video>>
Brace Management/TENS unit Setup
We can assist in getting you the right brace for your situation, whether it’s for the back muscles or a joint. We can also help you obtain a TENS unit and provide proper education on how to use the device.
We perform Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs) and participate in many Worker’s Comp insurance plans. As a licensed DSI Work Solutions provider, we are also able to come on-site to your business and establish Job Function Matching, which provides specific Pre-Employment/Post-Offer testing, and other on-site services aimed at reducing injuries.

We offer orthopedic therapy evaluations and plans. We serve a wide range of injuries, post-surgical conditions, and chronic conditions. We also have a strong track record of working with physicians to make sure our patients get the best care possible for their situation.
Solo-Step Ceiling Rail

Non-surgical spine decompression is a type of motorized traction that works by stretching the spine to open up joints and take pressure off the disks and nerves. This helps with neck and lower back pain, arm and leg pain, and arthritic conditions.
After an initial evaluation, we will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan to meet the goals you have for returning to what you love to do.
Vestibular Rehabilitation involves the diagnosing and treatment of a variety of disorders and conditions concerning vision, the inner ear, and the nervous system, which typically affect balance.
We offer various special programs based on patient needs. These may include Strength/Endurance Programs, Cardiovascular/Weight Loss Programs, and Lymphedema Treatment. If you have a goal related to your function – something you want to achieve and are unsure how to reach it – give us a call! We’ll help you determine the best course of action. Watch Video>>
Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation
Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (BFR) has become a forerunner as one of the newest training methods for rehab and performance. Research continues to support the use of BFR for strength and hypertrophy gains. According to Owens Recovery Science, “Blood Flow Restriction(BFR) Rehabilitation is the brief and intermittent occlusion of blood flow using a tourniquet while exercising.” This technique allows individuals to exercise with lighter weight while still creating hypertrophy (growth) and strength response. In a traditional setting, hypertrophy and strength response in muscles only occur with lifting heavy weights. Using Blood Flow Restriction, endurance and strength are gained even though a lighter load is being used. This is clinically significant, because patients are often unable to do heavy lifting due to their condition.
