Our physical therapists help patients improve their use of bones, muscles, joints and nerves. Patients with post-operative complications from joint replacements and amputations are treated with special attention.
Physical therapy encourages patients through a variety of exercises that improve strength, balance, coordination and endurance:
- Mobility: Assistance with gaining strength to increase independence with getting out of beds and chairs, walking and wheelchair mobility
- Balance: Sitting and standing balance instruction
- Endurance: Improved ability to perform activities and return to normal activities
- Education: Use of equipment including walker, cane, wheelchair and safety techniques for the patient and family
Please call us to discuss your particular condition and situation so that we can create a custom plan for you to increase mobility, decrease pain and gain confidence in your abilities.
Recently, we also started a comprehensive follow-up plan to ensure you maintain your mobility long after physical therapy ends. As a certified health coach, Patricia can help to identify areas which may be preventing you from achieving your optimal health and wellness. She will assist you in managing a plan for healthy eating, exercise and lifestyle success.
