Physical therapy (PT) includes specialized treatments for illnesses or injuries that limit a person’s ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Through examination, diagnosis, development of individualized programs and interventions, physical therapy is used to improve a patient’s quality of life. Our therapists also work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs, as well as aiding in the recovery process by developing fitness and wellness-oriented programs to achieve the highest level possible of functional mobility and independence.
Occupational therapy (OT) is the use of assessment and intervention to develop, recover or maintain activities of daily living. Occupational therapists assist people across the lifespan to participate in everyday activities and tasks they want and need to do. Through the therapeutic use of everyday activities, occupational therapy practitioners help older adults recover from injury, illness or disability to enable them to live life to its fullest.
