Our Specialties

Hand Therapy

Hand Therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper limb: your hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder girdle. It merges theories of occupational and physical therapy in order to enhance an individual’s ability to execute tasks requiring the upper limb and, ultimately, participate fully in activities of daily living. You may benefit from Hand Therapy if you have experienced traumatic injuries to your hand, arm, and/or shoulder, if you have arthritis, or if you experience chronic upper limb pain. Hand Therapy is also beneficial for individuals in need of splints. It is conducted by a licensed Occupational Therapist and Certified Hand Therapist. 

Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is a swelling of a body part, most often the extremities. It may also occur in the face, the trunk, the abdomen or the genital area. Lymphedema is the result of an accumulation of protein-rich fluid in the superficial tissues, which can have significant pathological and clinical consequences for the patient if left untreated.  Once present, this chronic and progressive condition will not disappear by itself. Although there is no cure for lymphedema, Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) can help. CDP works to reduce the swelling and to maintain the reduction.  Treatment consists of two phases and the following combined modalities: Manual Lymph Drainage, Compression, Exercises, and Skin Care. A licensed Physical Therapist trained in Lymphedema Therapy conducts this type of treatment. Click here to learn more about Lymphedema Therapy. 

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps people across the lifespan to participate in everyday activities that they want and/or need to do. Occupational therapy is useful for people recovering from an injury to regain skills. It can also help older adults cope with physical and cognitive changes. Occupational therapy can help children with disabilities achieve maximum participation in school and social situations. For more information on pediatric occupational therapy, click here.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy treats disease, injury, or functional impairments by utilizing evidence-based treatments. You may benefit from physical therapy if health problems make it hard for you to move around and do everyday tasks, if you have suffered a sports-related injury, or if you have recently had surgery. Physical therapy can improve mobility and function as well as relieve pain. For more information on pediatric physical therapy, click here.
