Our skilled physical therapy team provides treatments for elders who may have experienced a loss of mobility, balance and strength due to illness, injury or other disabling conditions. Our primary goals:

  • Restore functioning

Using exercise, therapeutic modalities, assistive devices for ambulation, patient education and advance rehabilitative techniques, our skilled physical therapy team teaches residents how to manage their condition so that they can achieve long-term health benefits and prevent new problems.
