Specialized physical therapy programs

  • Aquatic therapy uses a warm water therapy pool to enhance recovery and improve some patients' tolerance for activities that might be difficult to achieve on land.
  • Women's and men's pelvic floor therapy incorporates an exercise-based physical medicine program that includes posture and body mechanics, behavior modification, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, relaxation techniques and muscle strengthening. It is designed to help overcome urinary incontinence and pelvic pain that can affect both men and women.
  • Vestibular rehabilitation uses specific exercises to treat dizziness and loss of balance associated with inner ear problems, neck injuries, aging and other medical conditions.
