Comprehensive Therapy Offerings

Sports Performance

Sports performance therapy, or sports rehabilitation, focuses on optimizing athletic performance, preventing injuries, and facilitating the safe return to sports activities after injury.

The goal is to enhance athletic performance, prevent injuries through education and conditioning, and rehabilitate athletes following injuries to restore optimal function and prevent recurrence.

Sports performance therapists use a combination of exercise prescription, sport-specific training, biomechanical analysis, injury prevention strategies, manual therapy, and performance enhancement techniques to address the unique needs of athletes.

Hand / Occupational Therapy

Our Hand/Occupational therapy focuses on helping individuals participate in meaningful daily activities (occupations) despite physical, cognitive, or emotional challenges.

The goal of occupational therapy is to enhance independence, productivity, and quality of life by improving clients’ abilities to perform activities of daily living (ADLs), work-related tasks, and leisure activities.

Hand/Occupational therapists use a holistic approach, incorporating activities, adaptive equipment, environmental modifications, and therapeutic interventions to address physical, cognitive, psychosocial, and sensory aspects of functioning.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy primarily focuses on restoring movement and function to individuals who have experienced injury, illness, or disability.

The goal of physical therapy is to alleviate pain, improve mobility, restore function, and prevent further injury or disability for the patient.

Physical therapists use various techniques such as exercise, manual therapy, modalities (e.g., heat, cold, electrical stimulation), and education to help patients regain strength, flexibility, and coordination.
