Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists

Our PT staff provides expertise in teaching patients functional mobility inside and outside their homes, including instruction in gait training with appropriate assistive device.  We assess the need for home modifications necessary to improve patient safety and function.  We teach our patients how to safely perform transfers from all surfaces, stair training, balance training and instruction in exercises for strengthening and range of motion to increase independence & safety.  Physical Therapists are experts in rehabilitation from injury or surgery.  We use exercise and hands on therapy to return you to your prior level of function.


Strength & Range of Motion

The available range of motion that all of the joints in the body have, as well as the strength of the muscles that surround the joints, can both affect how you move. Physical therapy can help address both the available range of motion that a joint has as well as increasing strength of a muscle to improve stability and mobility.


Gait and Mobility

Physical Therapists specialize in training individuals in safe and independent walking in the home and community.  This includes using canes and walkers, going up and down stairs, and safely negotiating obstacles in the home.  


Balance Training

Physical Therapists are experts in improving balance.  We work to improve your bodies ability to adjust to different walking surfaces, step over obstacles, and recover if a loss of balance does occur.  We will ensure you are as safe as possible while maintaining your independent mobility.

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic physical therapy utilizes the unique knowledge, skills, and training of a physical therapist that cannot be performed by a caregiver, personal trainer, or aquatic instructor. The water can be used for suspension, resistance, increased ease of movement, challenging balance, relaxation of tight muscles, as well as a sensory experience that can be both stimulating or calming depending on how the environment is used.
