Physical & Occupational Therapists

Our highly-trained rehabilitation team help patients restore lost mobility and reduce pain, both before and after surgery

Physical Therapists (PTs) and Occupational Therapists (OTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility - in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects. Similar to our PTs are our Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs), who work under the direction and supervision of our physical therapists. All PTAs complete an intensive education so that they can provide our patients with the same care and attention as our PTs during their follow-up visits.

 

Our devoted therapists specialize in an extensive range of conditions including post-surgical rehabilitation, arthritis and tendinitis. In addition to their work at Arthritis & Sports, each of our therapists regularly attend continuing education seminars in the areas of orthopaedics, neurology, and sports medicine.
