How We Help You


Hand Therapy

Our physical therapy and hand therapy plans understand the urgent care you need with recovering function to your upper extremities – from your shoulders to the tips of your fingers. Rediscovering and remastering control over your arms, hands, and fingers can be a difficult journey, and our hand therapists are ready to guide you every step of the way.


Sports Medicine

The explosiveness and speed of athletic training can cause a multitude of sports injuries and stress fractures, and our orthopedics and sports medicine treatment plans are equipped to handle it all. Whether in need an antigravity treadmill or the tender touch of our physical rehabilitation professionals, we can help any world-class athlete rediscover their world-class form.


Occupational Therapy

We help you do the things you want to do and get back to living the life that’s yours. No matter your age or lifestyle, the aim of our occupational therapists is to transition from the hospital and medical clinics, back to life that you remember. With your medical records, behavioral needs, and specific goals in mind, we design a unique health care plan to help you get back to your best.


Injury Prevention

Pain management requires constant attention and a mindset of continuing education, and preventing further injury is crucial towards stopping recurring pain. After we help restore function to your muscles and joints, our therapy examiners help you start your path to therapy and home care that can relieve pain, long-term.
