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. 

Physiatry

Our physiatrist, Dr. Kevin Rice, treats a wide scope of cases - from brain and spinal cord injuries to stroke and burn victims. Physiatrists like Dr. Rice direct a comprehensive rehabilitation team of professionals that may include physical therapists, occupational therapists, recreational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, psychologists, social workers, and others.  

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy treats disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise.  You may need physical therapy if health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks, or function as you used to. It can help you move better 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 therapy sessions are designed to meet the unique needs of each individual.
