Tell me more about rehabilitation for Medicare Patients.
Our offices are one of the few free-standing facilities in the area which are Medicare certified as outpatient rehabilitation agencies. This enables our Medicare patients to have better coverage for services than most outpatient facilities which have restraints on the amount of service which can be performed – regardless of the need.

What type of injuries do you treat?
We treat and rehabilitate all types of problems – from sprained ankles to total joint replacements. Also: reconstruction of ligaments and tendons, “tennis elbow”, amputations, neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis and stroke, chronic neck or back pain related to injury or simply poor posture or faulty body mechanics, wounds, foot disorders and more.
