Balance problems and the risk of falling are important and valid concerns for many people on a day-to-day basis. An injury from a fall can limit a person's ability to lead an active, independent life. If you are currently having balance problems or have any history of falls, ask your doctor if physical therapy would be helpful. The program begins with an evaluation by a physical therapist, who then sets up a treatment program based on the evaluation findings and the patient's goals.
Our testing measures the physical attributes needed to perform everyday activities in later life, including, strength, endurance, flexibility, agility and balance. This is a safe and enjoyable test for adults, age 60 and above. The test will determine your fitness level as compared to others your age.
Our occupational therapists help patients of all ages regain their independence in doing normal, everyday activities. Therapists often work with patients who have problems with their hands and wrists after suffering from broken bones, carpal tunnel, hand surgeries and arthritis. They also work with patients who have experienced a stroke, head injuries or other neurological conditions.
Our speech therapist is trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of communication, cognition and swallowing disorders for patients of all ages.
