Aging, injury, and illness can threaten a body’s movement. Our therapists are trained to maximize one’s movement and help relieve pain. Physicians order physical therapy and/or occupational therapy to help their patients regain strength, range of motion, balance, and function. Clients also learn how to prevent further injury and are provided home exercise programs.
