What We Do?

Physucal Rehabilitation

Physical rehabilitation is a medical specialty that helps people regain body functions they lost due to medical conditions or injury. Some of the conditions seen for physical rehabilitation includes stroke, Gullian Barre syndrome, head injury and spinal cord injury.

Hand Therapy

Hand therapy is the art and science of evaluating and treating injuries and conditions of the upper extremity (shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand). It uses a number of therapeutic interventions to help return a person to their highest level of function. It evolved from the need for a specialist with the knowledge and experience required to manage the challenging recovery of complex hand and upper extremity injuries.

We assess and treat conditions that affect hands, arms and shoulders. We also make splints according to the patients` needs. People who can benefit from splinting are those with tendon injury, carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis etc. The splints include:

  • Resting splints
  • Rock-up splints
  • Flexor tendon splints
  • Extensor tendon splint
  • Gutter splints
  • Back slabs

  • Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. We help children to succeed in important areas of life using a holistic approach. Children are assessed using standardized and non-standardized tools to determine limitations in different areas like

  • Gross motor - hopping, jumping, skipping, ball skills.
  • Fine motor - cutting - handwriting, pencil grip, coloring and others.
  • Visual perception - eye hand coordination, copying, figure ground, visual closure and form constancy.
  • Attention.
  • Sensory integration.
  • Vocational Rehabilitation

    Vocational Rehabilitation is a process which enables persons with functional, psychological, developmental, cognitive, and emotional disabilities or impairments or health disabilities to overcome barriers to accessing, maintaining, or returning to employment or other useful occupations. We do functional capacity evaluations to compare a person`s health status to the job demands for the purpose of determining fitness for work or adaptations needed for an employee to work effectively.

    Who may need functional capacity evaluation?

  • person who was injured or was sick and now wants to return to work
  • A person who was involved in an accident
  • A person who applied for payments from the Insurance companies
  • A person applying for social security payments
