Customized Treatment Plans
Physical therapy is tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient. Our therapists will determine which systems in your body are causing the loss of coordination, and then create a customized set of exercises to help improve your balance and mobility. These exercises may include tandem walking with a heel-to-toe pattern, single-leg stance, or the use of specialized tools like Biomechanical Ankle Platforms (BAPs) and wobble boards.
Whether you’re recovering from an accident, stroke, prolonged illness or surgery, our physical therapy treatments can help you maintain or restore as much function as possible. Additionally, we can help you get back to specific activities such as jogging, gardening, or climbing stairs through practice and adaptation.
