One-On-One Treatment

Many clinics have rehabilitation aides that assist with treatment. We believe in keeping a high standard of care with the treatment you receive. After the initial evaluation with a member of our skilled staff, you will receive one-on-one, hands-on care from a licensed therapist.

Patient Education

When it comes to physical, occupational or speech rehabilitation, education is a vital part of the process. Staff members take the time with every patient to describe their injury and the strategy designed to improve their condition. The therapist’s goal is to teach patients how to prevent and control their symptoms, and in turn provide exercise programs which will assist in the healing process.
