Geriatric Physical Therapy and Wellness Programs

Rehab United offers more than just sports medicine!

Whether its an injury or disease affecting the muscles, bones, ligaments, or tendons – we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of the physical therapy profession in terms of patient management and standard of practice. Our integrated staff is highly educated and trained in utilizing a biomechanical approach to the assessment and treatment of underlying mechanical dysfunction. Our philosophy is based on Applied Functional Science (AFS), which allows for integration of upright function into the therapy session to mimic authentic motion seen in activities of daily living, sport or work. We have seen safe and effective transitions from short to long-term goals for common orthopedic conditions, such as: sprains/strains, mechanical imbalance, overuse syndromes, or surgery. Our open-floor concept allows for the reproduction and practice of specific movement patterns to assist in learning or re-learning how joints should move to avoid further tissue irritation.

Quality of care is of utmost importance, especially with our aging patient population. Our geriatric consideration goes well beyond applying orthopedic concepts to therapy and is applied in a gentle way at comfortable pace to cater to comorbidities like balance deficits, dizziness, fall-risk, and mobility needs that are expected into the elder years.

Common orthopedic conditions we treat:

  • Spine dysfunctions including scoliosis
  • Back and Neck Pain
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Post-Surgical Rehabilitation including Partial and Total Joint Replacement surgeries
  • Neuromuscular dysfunction: Sciatica, Carpal Tunnel, etc.
  • Generalized weakness affecting activities of daily living and independence
