What is Physiotherapy?
It is the practice of reducing pain, improving strength, and restoring mobility through specific exercises and equipment.
We can help you prevent or manage musculoskeletal injuries. Physiotherapy improves mobility issues, acute pain, and other chronic conditions with a focus on long-term health.
How Can Physiotherapy Help Me?
Our goal is to help you heal faster after surgery, an accident, or an illness—without surgery or prescription drugs.
Our therapists will work with you to correct your musculoskeletal conditions using non-invasive, injury-specific rehabilitative exercises. At our center you’ll get a program designed just for you, not a “one-size-fits-all” plan.
We will treat injuries, orthopedic conditions, and pre- and post-surgery of the:
- Neck and back
- Arm and shoulder
- Hand and wrist
- Foot and ankle
What Treatments Do You Offer?
Our therapists will determine why you got injured, teach you exercises and techniques to reduce your pain, and guide you to improve your strength and mobility. We’ll also explain the mechanics of your gait and of your sport to help speed your recovery and protect you from further injury.

Can Physiotherapy Help My Arthritis?
Yes. Joint pain, movement limitations, and stiffness are common complaints of people with arthritis and osteoarthritis. Many people may think that protecting arthritic joints is helpful, but not moving actually contributes to weakness.
Our therapists help people with arthritis safely exercise to strengthen their muscles around arthritic joints. This keeps you active and may help reduce pain, stiffness, and inflammation in your joints.
We recognize that older adults are staying active longer than ever before. We offer physiotherapy to help reduce pain, promote motion, and prevent falls.
These exercises will keep you moving and help you enjoy your favorite activities and sports. We are dedicated to helping you accomplish and maintain the highest quality of life.
