  • Gross-Motor Level
  • Muscle Tone
  • Range of Motion

Balance/Vestibular

Do you suffer from dizziness, unsteadiness and falling? At RehabVisions, our therapy staff have specialized training in treating all types of balance and vestibular system disorders including vertigo, concussions, migraine-related vertigo and much more. We use the most up-to-date technologies and proven therapies to assess your condition and get you back on your feet.

 

Lymphedema

Our Certified Lymphedema Therapist is specially trained in the evaluation and individualized treatment of the swelling associated with both primary and secondary lymphedema. Lymphedema is most commonly associated with damage to the lymphatic system caused by cancer therapy including surgery and radiation.

The swelling and discomfort associated with lymphedema can be debilitating, and although there is no cure, it can be successfully managed with proper treatment. Our certified PT will completely evaluate your history and condition before making an individualized treatment plan based on your needs. Treatment includes complete decongestive therapy (CDT) consisting of:

  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage

  • Compression Therapy

  • Lymph Drainage Exercises

  • Skin and Nail Care

  • Patient Education

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy, or pool therapy, consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water. It uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance.

The supportive environment makes aquatic therapy a good option for many, especially those with arthritis, healing fractured bones, or who are overweight. Children often are motivated in the fun environment.
