Aqua therapy

The resistance provided by water can be used as a gentle strengthening tool, while being weightless in water takes the pressure off muscles and joints of the body and allows treatment of patients who are not fully weight bearing.

 

 

Work conditioning programs

If you are unable to return to work as a result of injuries you have sustained at work, in an accident or as a result of playing sports, we have the solution for you. 

 

We begin by determining the physical demands of your job.  Next we assess your functional capabilities to determine your limitations as far as your job is concerned.  After that we design a program to improve your level of function so that you can meet the physical demands of your job. This program consists of exercises and clinic based simulation of the physical demands of your job.  The intensive program is designed to gradually improve your endurance and allow you to return to work without aggravation of your condition.
