Our Spine Rehabilitation programs specialize in the evaluation and treatment of mechanical spine dysfunctions. We also provide care in acute and chronic disc problems, degenerative spine diseases and post-operative spinal surgeries. Our spine therapists are in-house trained in a unique form of Manual Therapy (Arthropraxis). Specific manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises along with reconditioning programs are used to rehabilitate our patients.

Pediatric Rehab provides physical therapy and occupational therapy services to children with a variety of diagnoses. Physical therapy works with children in developing gross motor skills, muscle strength and normal movement abilities. Occupational therapy focuses on developing fine motor skills for functional and daily living activities.
EMG and nerve conduction studies (often referred to simply as an “EMG”) are performed when a peripheral nerve problem, muscle disease, or neuromuscular junction disorder is suspected. An EMG can help determine the location of a “pinched nerve” and determine the severity of the problem. A physician may refer a patient for an EMG when symptoms such as numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, and pain are present. This type of testing is done by physical therapists with extensive training in evaluating neuromuscular disorders. These physical therapists are board certified specialists in Clinical Electrophysiology by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.
- Electromyography (EMG)
- Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)
- Somatosensory Evoked Potentials
Nerve structures such as the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves may be at risk during some orthopedic, brain, vascular, or facial surgeries. Intraoperative monitoring provides the surgeon real-time information which can be used to maximize the success of the surgical procedure. This type of monitoring is widely considered to be the standard of care. Highly trained technologists Certified in Neurophysiological Intraoperative Monitoring by the American Board of Registration of Evoked Potential Technologists perform this monitoring.
Evoked potential testing can be a useful adjunct to other imaging studies such as MRI in evaluating disorders of the central nervous system. This testing is done on an out-patient basis.
Our lymphedema program helps to create a treatment plan based on the Complex Decongestive Therapy (CDT) methods which consist of: manual lymphatic drainage; bandaging; proper skin care & diet; compression garments (sleeves, stockings, etc); remedial exercises; self-manual lymphatic drainage & bandaging, if instruction is available; continue to follow prophylactic methods at all times.
The application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body, generally intended to reduce stress and fatigue while improving circulation. The many variations of massage account for several different techniques. The application of these techniques may include, but is not limited to, stroking, kneading, tapping, compression, vibration, rocking, friction, and pressure to the muscular structure or soft tissues of the human body. This may also include non-forceful passive or active movement and/or application of techniques intended to affect the energetic systems of the body.
Our speech therapists work with a full range of human communication and its disorders, speech-language pathologists to evaluate and diagnose speech, language, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders. They then develop a plan to treat speech, language, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders in individuals of all ages, from infants to the elderly.

Stress, urge, and mixed incontinence can be treated conservatively with a supervised exercise program, patient education, and bladder training. The patient will learn how a healthy bladder diet, appropriate fluids, and normal bladder habits can be effective in eliminating or reducing incontinence.
