The new HealthPlex features an expanded Physical Therapy area with 10 private rooms and a common area with exercise equipment. Department staff offer rehabilitation for orthopedic, back, neck, joint or muscle injuries or difficulties; neurological (stroke, Parkinson’s, etc.) injuries or diseases; or sports injuries. Continence therapy is also available. Services are provided for all ages–pediatric through geriatric. A physician’s referral is required.
For more information, call 526-5436.
A never-before-offered service is aquatic therapy with a heated exercise pool. Aquatic therapy can provide resistance exercises with little or no weight-bearing which would be appropriate for many types of patients. In many cases, rehabilitation can be initiated sooner if a patient can exercise in a pool rather than on land. Aquatic therapy can be beneficial for sports-related and other conditions including arthritis, osteoporosis, sprains, strains and contusions, tendonitis, bursitis and fractures; pre- and post-operative, especially anterior cruciate ligament, knee or hip replacement, arthroscopic, back and shoulder surgeries. Changing rooms are available.
