We offer programs focused on prevention and treatment of work related injuries, a Balance Center and an indoor gym and pool.

Occupational Therapy

We offer ergonomic evaluations and functional capacity assessments to local industries and physicians. We use a BTE Work Simulator to duplicate "real world" functions in order to design a therapy program to meet your individual needs. Our occupational therapists also work with inpatients and outpatients who have suffered illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, arthritis and trauma.
