Physical and Occupational therapy services are available to individuals who present with orthopedic problems. This may include overuse injuries, sprains/strains, fractures and pre/post operative care of the spine and extremities.

Treatment may include individualized strengthening exercises, ROM exercises, modalities for pain management or manual techniques including joint mobilizations and traction.
Other treatment options may include: Kinesiotaping/McConnell taping, manual cupping, pilates, and aquatic therapy

Your first visit will include an initial examination focusing on your functional limitations, your pain and your ROM and strength deficits.  You will be involved in designing a home exercise program and establishing a treatment plan at this first visit.
