SPECIALTIES

Our clinicians are offered continuing education assistance to expand their knowledge and increase the breadth of services we offer our patients. 

LSVT BIG

Treatment for neurological impairments, such as Parkinson's Disease, LSVT effectively trains improved movements for any activity, whether “small motor” tasks like buttoning a shirt or “large motor” tasks like getting up from sofa or chair or maintaining balance while walking. Clinicians must renew their certification every two years to provide this specialized treatment.

Dry Needling

Used for the treatment of pain and movement impairments. The technique uses a "dry" needle, one without medication, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle to release trigger points that may be causing pain and dysfunction.

Prehabilitation

The stronger you are before surgery, the stronger you’ll be after. That’s the philosophy behind prehabilitation (or “prehab”), the process of improving strength and functional capacity before surgery through a comprehensive and targeted exercise program – a process typically overseen by a physical therapist and/or occupational therapist. Prehabilitation is utilized before surgeries such as total knee replacements or spinal surgeries.

VitalStim Therapy

VitalStim is a non-invasive therapy that uses an electrical current to stimulate the muscles responsible for swallowing. It is the only FDA-cleared device for treatment of dysphagia (swallowing difficulty). Our Speech-Language Pathologist is certified to provide this specialized treatment.

Safe Driving Assessment

Our occupational therapist utilizes a battery of evidence-based assessments to determine the risk level of safe driving. This service is useful for family members who are concerned whether their loved one is still considered safe to drive. These assessments are administered in your home with a referral provided, if necessary, for an on-road driving evaluation.

Aging in Place

Assessment of your physical, cognitive, and sensory abilities that may place you at risk in managing your daily tasks. 

Home Accessibility Evaluations (inside and outside) with recommendations for accommodations or adaptations. Treatment of areas discovered in the assessment that may prevent you from reaching your aging in place goals. 

 

Education with practice of skills to caregivers who assist you in your daily activities.
