In our spacious gym, our therapists utilize a wide variety of state-of-the-art equipment such as the Balance Master and Zuni Unloading System.  The Balance Master incorporates advanced technology that aids rehabilitation in patients with balance or mobility problems due to a variety of causes including stroke, inner ear problems and joint injuries. The Zuni Unloading system is used to allow for walking and running on the treadmill for those patients who cannot tolerate full weight bearing activities.  This system allows for a speedier return to their previous level of function.

The therapists’ goal is to assist with pain management, posture awareness, improve function, range of motion, strength and to increase overall independence using a variety of equipment and hands-on techniques.
