Pre/Post Surgery -   
Prehab or post rehab for aftercare following surgeries of the: ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, hand, wrist and back, ie:  total/partial shoulder, hip, and knee replacement, carpal tunnel, fractures, and spinal fusions. Our therapist will evaluate,  treat and progress patient based on the established plan of care, considering each condition. 

Generalized Weakness - 
One of the most common complaints of seniors, has many symptoms usually include fatigue, fainting, whole body  muscle weakness and is usually accompanied by low blood pressure.  Patient with generalized weakness can usually be dehydrated, have low blood sugar and shortness of breath. Assessing the patient's function, endurance, ROM and   strength, we can create a conditioning plan of care addressing decreased motor control, endurance and improved balance   improving overall weakness, function and risk of falls.  

Chronic Pain Conditions - 
Low back pain, neck pain, fibromyalgia, TMJ, arthritis (Osteo and Rheumatoid), Sciatica, etc...  Chronic pain conditions can benefit from physical therapy through addressing the soft tissue restrictions that may be  contributing to the problem. Patient's posture, strength and ROM is assessed to find which tissues are "tight" and which  are "weak" causing bone malalignment and increased pain to pain sensitive tissues.
