Therapy Goals

This type of program may begin in an aquatic environment to help provide stabilization and increase endurance. A progression to a land based program is to be expected.

Upon referral, each patient is evaluated by our staff and a problem specific treatment plan is developed. During the treatment process, we provide on-going communication about treatment goals and progress to the patient and physician, as well as employers and insurers.

We continuously re-evaluate the patient's response to treatment and take an active role in reaching a successful outcome.
