At the Slocum Therapy Center, the goal of our experienced staff is to help you recover from your injury and improve your physical abilities and overall fitness. Our center offers comprehensive care for musculoskeletal rehabilitation, hand therapy, and sports therapy and is conveniently located at our main building, near other Slocum Center services.
Our physical therapists combine specific exercises and activities to help restore joint and muscular function, strength, and range of motion for sports and orthopedic injuries. Other goals include increasing mobility, improving posture, and correcting body mechanics through nonsurgical and postsurgical rehabilitation programs.
Our occupational therapists are certified hand therapists who have advanced clinical knowledge to address arm and hand dysfunction. Our hand therapist evaluates and implements an individualized program for surgical and nonsurgical diagnosis. The aim is to achieve the maximum outcome for functional independence, so that the individual can return to pre-injury activities in his or her personal life, work, and recreation. The patient and therapist collaborate to restore muscular function, strength, and movement through exercises, therapeutic activities, and specialized splinting.
Water provides buoyancy that increases the ease of movement while decreasing impact and pain. Water resistance helps condition the muscles without stressing tissues and joints. Many patients, including those who are postoperative, can benefit from water therapy.
