Pediatric therapy

is available for children with special needs. The pediatric rooms are designed to provide a fun, playful environment. Our Pediatric Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapists use a multi-disciplinary approach to determine and reach each child and family’s goals.

Hand therapy

is available for those needing rehabilitation of the hand and upper limb, most commonly caused by injury, disease (eg. arthritis) or a disorder such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Hand therapy consists of assessment and treatment of the condition by a certified hand therapist.

Pelvic Floor Muscle Re-training (PFMR)
