Physical Therapy Services

Outpatient therapy can improve your quality of life by alleviating pain, maximizing function and promoting healing. We have five modern, spacious locations that offer a full range of physical therapy services. You’ll also find specialized and unique outpatient therapy services, including:

Aquatic Therapy

Our aquatic therapy program uses water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance.

  • Buoyancy assists in reducing force of stress on joints. It’s useful for patients with arthritis, healing fractures or who are overweight.
  • Viscosity provides resistance that allows for muscle strengthening without the need of weights and further decreases joint stress.
  • Hydrostatic Pressure decreases swelling and improves joint position awareness. It’s beneficial to patients with acute injuries such as sprains and strains, as well as post-op patients.
  • Warmth helps relax muscles and increase blood flow to injured areas. This temperature is especially beneficial to patients with muscle spasms, back pain or fibromyalgia.

Aquatic therapy is also beneficial during pregnancy. We offer a Prenatal Aquatic Exercise Program that provides pregnant women with a safe alternative to exercising on land. The buoyancy of water reduces the effects of gravity and relieves joint stress and pain. In addition, the hydrostatic pressure of water helps to decrease swelling.

Lymphedema Therapy

Our two-phase program minimizes fluid accumulation caused by a compromised lymphatic system.
