Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training

Blood flow restriction (BFR) training is a technique that uses cuffs to decrease blood flow to the arm or leg during strengthening exercises. This training allows patients to exercise at lower loads and still get the benefit of higher intensity training. BFR is especially beneficial for:

  • Post-surgical patients
  • Those with arthritis whose ability to exercise is decreased
  • Athletes in rehab after an injury.

Our therapists will review the patient’s medical history to determine if they are an appropriate candidate for BFR.

Ergonomic Evaluations

Ergonomics is the proper match between work task, work tools and the human body. Information gained from this science applies to the design of office equipment and environments. The study of workplace performance and problems has also produced many tips, which can be used to help prevent pain and injury at jobsites.

Our occupational or physical therapist specially trained in ergonomics can help evaluate and provide recommendations to reduce job stress. The assessment can be done on one specific job task.

Industrial Rehabilitation

The industrial rehabilitation program is designed to increase an individuals strength and physical endurance required for a safe return to work. Based off an evaluation of physical strength, joint flexibility and endurance following an injury or accident, an individualized, job-specific therapy program is created consisting of progressive exercises and simulated work activities. An ergonomic assessment is an evaluation of workstations, work processes and adapting the individual to prevent injury.

The industrial rehabilitation program involves assessments by occupational and physical therapists, who have specialized training and certifications necessary for this work.

LSVT BIG® and LSVT LOUD® Therapy

Our trained therapists help patients with Parkinson’s Disease improve their function and slow motor deterioration by retraining sensory, motor and cognitive functions through LSVT BIG® and LSVT LOUD® Therapy. The programs include intensive exercise and patient empowerment by increasing speech intelligibility, facial expressions and improving confidence in patients.

LSVT BIG® and LSVT LOUD® therapy are customized to the unique goals of each patient, with patient-centered care as our focus. During treatment sessions, patients are taken through a specific series of exercises and work on functional activities. Phrases are provided with a home exercise program to be completed daily.

Osteoporosis Therapy
Our comprehensive osteoporosis therapy program includes resistance and postural exercises, balance training and proper body mechanics. A physician referral is required.
Stroke Rehabilitiation

We offer an individualized stroke therapy program designed to treat problems caused by a stroke, including:

  • Paralysis
  • Speech or language difficulties
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Vision changes
  • Thinking or memory problems.

Our therapists focus on helping each patient reach their individual therapy goals and improve their ability to return to, and remain safe, in their home.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular Rehabilitation is a therapeutic program using exercise to help regain the sense of balance. A medical condition called vertigo, or dizziness, is produced when debris from the inner ear is dislodged and accumulated in the posterior canal of the ear. When the head moves, the debris can pull on the tiny hair-like sensors in the ear canal that disturbs our equilibrium. Individuals sometimes describe vertigo as if they are spinning, or their environment is spinning – causing them to feel dizzy. This condition causes you to be at an increased risk for falls and can make it difficult to do normal activities.

Our physical and occupational therapists use special techniques to reduce dizziness and help patients regain normal function. Typically, a therapist will recommend personalized exercises for the patient to do at home on a regular basis, between therapy appointments.

Stroke Club is a support group for family members, caregivers and individuals who have suffered a stroke.
