Physical Therapy and More for Any Stage of Life
Physical medicine and rehabilitation helps enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life for people with temporary or permanent physical impairments or disabilities. We offer a complete range of personalized services for all ages — from physical therapy and sports medicine to occupational and speech therapy — in a convenient location. Our goal is to help you live your best life.
Physical Therapy — Examination and treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular issues that may stop you from moving the way you want or need to. Our physical therapists treat muscle, tendon or ligament tears; strains; sprains; tendonitis and bursitis; fractures; and pain in the back, neck, shoulder, elbows, hands, hips, knees and feet. Treatment includes therapeutic exercise, strength and flexibility training, manual therapy, heat therapy, dry needling, gait training, balance training and more.
Sports Medicine — Specialized physical therapy for athletes of all ages, from the college or high school athlete to the weekend warrior or fitness fan. Our sports medicine team of physical therapists and athletic trainers are committed to helping you heal and get back in action. We commonly treat muscle strains, tendon injuries and overuse injuries. And should you need orthopedic surgery, it’s available too from our experienced staff surgeons. Lastly, we also provide sideline coverage for the Cherokee Braves and Marcus-Meridan-Cleghorn-Remsen-Union Royals athletic events.
Aquatic Therapy — Exercise program performed in our state-of-the-art pool, where the buoyancy of the water reduces stress on the body and allows you to move more freely and with less pain. Aquatic therapy is an excellent way to build strength in weak or injured muscles. The pool features a chair lift to help you in/out of the water.
Occupational Therapy — Helps you regain, develop or build skills for independent living following a stroke, spinal cord injury, cancer, hand injuries, congenital conditions, developmental problems or mental illness. Our experienced therapists will assist with your physical, psychological, social and environmental well-being.
