The goal of the amputation program is to assist patients in achieving functional independence, improving quality of life, and providing family and patient education. Our therapists develop individualized to support the patient throughout and beyond recovery.


Arthritis rehab focused on managing the symptoms and delaying the progression of arthritis. The ultimate goal is to eliminate pain altogether so that patients can enjoy a higher quality of life. Arthritis rehab may include stretching, mobility exercises, hot and cold therapy, strength exercise, and aerobic conditioning.


The Balance Program treats residents with diagnoses related to vestibular and neurological disorders. Specially trained therapists help residents:

  • Improve balance
  • Decrease dizziness
  • Minimize falls
  • Reduce their need for medication
  • Improve activity levels

Cancer Rehab

Cancer rehab can help cancer survivors reduce fatigue, increase vigor and strength, improve mood, and boost the immune system. Specialized services are available for disorders caused by specific types of cancer, such as:

  • Shoulder pain, arm swelling, and weakness or stiffness after breast or lung surgery
  • Pain or difficulty moving caused by bone tumors
  • Speech or swallowing disorders after neck or throat surgery
  • Weakness, loss of balance, decreased memory, and impaired speech due to brain tumors
  • Paralysis from spinal cord tumors.

Hand & Upper Extremity Therapy

Physical and occupational therapy can help residents regain the skills needed to perform daily activities such as dressing and eating. They also evaluate assistive equipment needs and have extensive knowledge in diagnosing and treating hand and upper extremity dysfunction.


Orthopedic rehab treats residents with trauma, disease, infection, tumors, and congenital disorders that affect the musculoskeletal system. We aim to recover functional skills, maximize mobility and reduce pain levels. Treatment may include electrical stimulation, pain management/pharmacology, strengthening, and assistive devices and techniques.

Lymphedema Management

The Lymphedema Program provides comprehensive rehab care to residents with acute to chronic lymphedema, the abnormal swelling of the arm, leg, or another body part due to an excessive buildup of fluid called lymph. This condition affects both men and women who receive lymph node dissection, radiation, injury, infection, or who are born with the swelling or get it for no apparent reason. Our staff has experience managing lymphedema and its complications from mild to severe.

Parkinson's Disease

Our credentialed, experienced staff provides specialized physical, occupational, and speech therapies tailored to each individual’s needs and goals. Treatment includes the latest therapy protocols such as Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery, and LSVT Big and Loud. Therapy should begin at time of diagnosis and occur in regular bouts throughout life to ensure patients experience optimal function and quality of life.

Pulmonary Rehab

The short-term pulmonary rehabilitation program is a specifically designed resident-focused program that helps the resident manage and minimize the debilitating effects of pulmonary disease. In addition, residents will gain a better understanding of the disease process, techniques to manage stress and anxiety, and knowledge of how nutrition and diet relate to their medical conditions.

Speech & Swallowing

The speech and swallowing program provides comprehensive rehab for voice, swallowing, or cognitive disorders. A team of specialized speech pathologists evaluates and treats residents, assesses the problem and its severity, and uses voice or language exercises, vital stim technology, and other training to help people develop effective communication skills and maximize their ability to swallow correctly.

Stroke Recovery

Residents who suffer strokes or cerebral vascular accidents (CVAs) may experience partial paralysis, weakness, loss of sensation, difficulty in speech, swallowing, or thought processes, or other neurological symptoms. Our highly skilled staff provides individualized therapy programs that address each resident's physical, functional, social, psychological, and speech/language needs. In addition, we offer an interdisciplinary team approach to improving function in mobility, communication, cognition, self-care, and community re-entry, if appropriate.
