University Physical & Hand Therapy

AQUATIC THERAPY

Exercise in a warm water pool to reduce joint pain and improve muscle strength and flexibility. We also have an underwater treadmill that allows early motion without interfering with the healing process for leg injuries. Return to walking and running activities much quicker by exercising and walking in a pool. Videos of progressive aquatic therapy for orthopedic conditions:

BACK THERAPY

Our experienced Spine therapists will guide you towards full recovery using the latest manual therapy techniques and exercise programs. Following a back injury, our experienced therapists can also teach you to avoid re-injury and maintain a healthy spine to perform all activities, including sports.

HAND THERAPY

Certified Hand Therapists provide expertise in hand rehabilitation and customized splinting to expedite your recovery from injury or surgery. Activities of daily living, such as eating, dressing, writing, and typing, require hand motion and strength, and your Hand Therapist can help you perform these activities independently again. Customized splinting will help protect your injured area to promote healing and get you on the road to recovery.

SPORTS THERAPY

Athletic trainers and Sports Physical Therapists get you back to your sports and fitness activities quickly. Combining sports knowledge with orthopedic expertise, we have the latest technology, exercise equipment and expertise to return you to your sport safely and quickly.

WORK CONDITIONING

Our specially trained staff helps injured workers return to their jobs safely and quickly. Using work simulation tasks and objective testing, workers can resume job related tasks under supervision following surgery or injury.
