We are committed to providing treatment and therapy related to disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles.
This includes the necessary psychological and physical therapy and necessary to navigate the changes caused by an amputation.
We are trained to help our prosthesis residents reorient their center of gravity, and improve weight bearing on the prothesis side of the body through specialized exercises & techniques.
