Orthopaedic Team
Our Orthopaedic Manual Therapists (OMT-C) provide care through the use of all available treatment techniques, including manual therapy and dry needling. 

We treat all orthopaedic and sports-related injuries—including neck, back, shoulder, elbow, hand, hip, knee ankle and foot—both before and after surgery. We also treat orthopaedic conditions as they relate to women, such as frozen shoulder and back pain from pregnancy.

Hand Therapy Team
Before and after surgery, our Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) provides treatment for all orthopaedic conditions for the shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Tendon repairs
  • Nerve injuries
  • Tennis elbow and carpal tunnel. 

Splints that are ordered by physicians are custom-made for each patient’s individual need.

Lymphedema Team
The greatest onset of lymphedema is associated with the after effects of cancer treatment by surgery or radiation. Our Lymphedema Certified (CLT-LANA) and Wound Care Certified (WCC) therapists treat primary and secondary lymphedema, as well as secondary conditions related to lymphedema, through manual lymphatic drainage, compression bandaging and compression garments. 

Breast Cancer Shoulder Team
After successful treatment for breast cancer, shoulder problems often persist. Issues such as pain, stiffness, limited strength and function (frozen shoulder) can limit daily activities. Our team, which includes a Rehab Cancer Specialist and an Orthopedic Manual Therapist (OMT-C), is dedicated to returning women to the activities they enjoyed as careerists, hobbyists and moms.

Neurological Team
We offer intensive rehabilitation for neurological conditions such as Stroke and Multiple Sclerosis. We have a neurological developmental training (NDT) certified therapist on staff. After undergoing a thorough evaluation, you and your physical therapist will discuss the treatment plan that will help you reach your goals of independence.

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Movement disorders (Parkinson’s Disease)
  • Fall prevention
  • Post concussion syndrome

Our team members are Certified Stroke and Rehabilitation Specialists (CSRS) through the National Stroke Association.
