Our Specialties

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps people across the lifespan participate in the everyday things they want and need to do. For example, occupational therapy can help children with disablities participate fully in school and social situations, or help people recovering from an injury regain skills.  It can also help older adults cope with physical and cognitive changes.  

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy treats disease, injury, or functional impairments by utilizing evidence-based treatments.  You may need physical therapy if health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks, you have suffered a sports related injury, or have recently had surgery. It can help you move better, improve function, and relieve pain.  

Speech Therapy

Our expert Speech-Language Pathologists are dedicated to helping adults or children improve their communication skills in all environments.  Speech-Language Pathologists also assist with disorders that make it difficult for individuals to swallow.  Speech therapy sessions are designed to meet the unique needs of each individual.
