- Physical: Our physical therapists use a variety of techniques to diagnose, treat, and manage movement dysfunction to enhance physical and functional abilities.
- Occupational: Focuses on recovering & improving bilateral upper extremity functional abilities more specifically acute & chronic orthopedic or neuromuscular conditions to the digits, hands, wrist, forearms, elbows & some minor shoulder diagnoses if in conjunction with more distal impairments. The treatment goal for all occupational therapy patients is to improve the efficiency of the patient’s ADLS and IADLS.
- Speech: Speech therapy services are provided to treat a variety of speech, language, swallowing and feeding disorders to ages ranging from pediatric to geriatric. We provide treatment for Aphasia, Dysarthria, Apraxia, Articulation, Receptive and Expressive Language, Voice, Dysphagia, Cognitive-Communication, Fluency, and Feeding Disorders. Our speech therapist is certified in VitalStim, LSVT LOUD®, and is PROMPT trained. We perform Modified Barium Swallow Studies for both the inpatient and outpatient population.
- Aquatic Therapy: This water-based therapy allows a gravity lessened environment to decrease weight bearing which allows for improved range of movement & movement patterns with less pain. It is also utilized in conjunction with land-based therapy to improve the patient’s overall function.
- LSVT BIG®: LSVT BIG® is a specialized movement program originally formulated for individuals with Parkinson's Disease. The program aims to correct smaller, stuttered movements and increase mobility, fluidity, and ease of daily activities. Though the program is not able to halt the disease process itself, LSVT BIG® has been shown through research to slow progression of movement disorders associated with Parkinson's Disease and improve individuals' independence while reducing risk for falls. Recent research is investigating LSVT BIG® as a treatment for people with chronic stroke. For more information, please refer to www.LSVTglobal.com.
- LSVT LOUD®: LSVT LOUD® is an effective treatment for people with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and other neurological conditions. LSVT LOUD® trains people with PD to use their voice at a more normal loudness level while speaking at home, work or in the community. The key to the treatment is helping people “recalibrate” their perceptions so they know how loud or soft they sound to other people and can feel comfortable using a stronger voice at a normal loudness level. LSVT LOUD® has recently shown promise for adults with speech issues arising from stroke or multiple sclerosis and children with cerebral palsy or Down syndrome.

- Lymphedema Management Therapy: Patients can take part in our lymphedema therapy, which uses manual lymphatic drainage, compression bandages, exercises, and skincare to reduce the risk of infection and restore function.
- McKenzie Therapy: Also known as Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT), the McKenzie Method is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education that is trusted and used by practitioners and patients all over the world for back, neck, pelvis, arm and leg problems. An evidence-based approach, the key distinction of MDT is its initial assessment component which is a safe and reliable means to accurately reach a diagnosis and only then make the appropriate treatment plan. Certified McKenzie clinicians have valid indicators to know right away whether, and uniquely how, the method will work for each patient.
- Pediatric Therapy: Our therapists are trained to provide therapy to children and young adults ages newborn-21. From swallowing disorders and delayed development to sports injuries, our therapists work to improve children’s functional ability.
- PROMPT: is an acronym for Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets. The technique is a tactile-kinesthetic approach that uses touch cues to a patient’s articulators (jaw, tongue, lips) to manually guide them through a targeted word, phrase or sentence. The technique develops motor control and the development of proper oral muscular movements while eliminating unnecessary muscle movements, such as jaw sliding and inadequate lip rounding. The most common patients have motor speech disorders, articulation problems or are non-verbal children. Many patients with aphasia, apraxia/dyspraxia, dysarthria, pervasive development disorders, cerebral palsy, acquired brain injuries, and autism spectrum disorders have benefitted from PROMPT therapy.

- Vestibular Rehabilitation: Vestibular rehabilitation can be effective in improving symptoms related to many vestibular (inner ear/balance) disorders, and it is intended to alleviate both the primary and secondary problems caused by vestibular disorders. It is an exercise-based program primarily designed to reduce vertigo and dizziness, gaze instability, and/or imbalance and falls.
