We Treat Patients at Every Level

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Here at Rehab United, we are committed to treating the causes of your condition to get you back to feeling like yourself again, however, you might not know that physical therapy isn't just for sports injuries and post-surgical recovery. The reasons for choosing physical therapy can be widespread, from overuse injuries and dysfunctions to prevention and management of pain. The bottom line is you don't need to already be injured to receive beneficial treatment.


Our Functional Approach to Physical Therapy

From pediatrics to geriatrics, we utilize the same functional approach to treatment regardless of age, level, and impairment.


Our Pediatric Physical Therapy Program primarily treats children with developmental, neurological, genetic, and orthopedic diagnoses. Some common pediatric conditions we treat include:

  • Neurodevelopmental Progression

  • Functional Gait Training

  • Balance/Proprioceptive Training

  • Sport-Specific Rehabilitation/ Return to Sport Programs

  • Independent Transfer Training


Our highly trained staff know that quality of care is essential in this environment, especially with an older population. We move at a gentle and comfortable pace that suits each individual elder's needs in order to treat an injury, disease, or prevent pain. Some common geriatric conditions we treat include:

  • Spine Dysfunctions including Scoliosis

  • Back and Neck Pain

  • Frozen Shoulder

  • Post-Surgical Rehabilitation including Partial and Total Joint Replacement Surgeries

  • Neuromuscular Dysfunction: Sciatica, Carpal Tunnel, etc.

  • Generalized Weakness Affecting Activities of Daily Living and Independence

Physical Therapy at Any Level In Between

Although many people utilize our services for sports injury rehabilitation and post-operative care, anyone is eligible to receive physical therapy in general. Our mission is to get people back to doing what they love, whether that be exercising, gardening, or playing with their children/grandchildren to name a few. Whatever the case is, we help you accomplish your goals and feel better than before. Our mission is successful due to the principles of Applied Functional Science (AFS).

AFS gives the patients what they need, tailored to their daily life and activities. We look at the root cause of an issue, not just the symptoms, and implement personalized functional movements in treatment plans that mimic the movements that your specific activity requires. A benefit of using functional movement in physical activity is it decreases the risk of injury and increases performance for people of all ages.

There are many misconceptions when it comes to physical therapy; many people think it's only for injuries or older populations. We help people experience a better quality of life by improving body mechanics and teaching good habits. All of us have aches and pains no matter what age, but getting ahead of them is important to reduce the risk of injury later in life. Children and young adults are especially encouraged to receive physical therapy as it can help during developmental years and implement good habits in their bodies to prevent issues down the line. For example, busy young people who participate in activities only in their spare time, or new moms getting used to a different way of life, both would reap the benefits of a trained physical therapist guiding them in their daily movements.
