With a commitment to helping each patient achieve the greatest possible level of independence, our experienced therapists offer the latest techniques for reducing pain, enhancing strength, increasing range of motion and improving mobility.
Based on the unique needs and goals of each individual, our physical and occupational therapists develop customized fitness- and wellness-oriented programs. Our goal is to help each patient find the most conservative treatment approach that will be effective over the long term, and this often involves physical therapy and occupational therapy. Since 2007, our services have consistently exceeded the expectations of 90 percent of our patients, and our practice is trusted and respected by both our patients and peers throughout the Houston, Texas, area.
What can be achieved with physical therapy and occupational therapy?
Often prescribed by physicians as a first-line treatment, physical therapy services help many individuals become stronger and more flexible, which in turn can allow them to regain function after sustaining an injury or developing a medical condition. More specifically, physical and occupational therapy can help a patient:
- Find effective relief from pain (including back pain that occurs during pregnancy)
- Return to work and resume other daily activities
- Prepare for the physical responsibilities of a new job
- Prevent further injuries
- Manage the effects of aging, including arthritis and bone density loss
- Improve balance and coordination
- Reduce the risk of falling
- Postpone or eliminate the need for surgery
In addition to physical therapy and occupational therapy – including services performed by a certified hand therapist – we provide our patients with access to a wide range of other orthopedic treatments, both surgical and nonsurgical. At our state-of-the-art facility in Houston, TX, we offer both adult and pediatric orthopedic services, and we welcome patients age six and older.
