Occupational & Hand Therapy
This program is designed for patients who have orthopaedic conditions of the hand or upper extremity, problems with fine motor skills, or the need for improvement in daily living activities. Our Occupational and Hand Therapists are skilled in fabricating custom splints for the hand and upper extremities.
Spine Center Spinal rehabilitation takes place in our state-of-the-art Spine Center. This therapy focuses on improving spine strength and flexibility, body mechanics, ergonomics, weight management, and aerobic conditioning. Using the MedX Exercise System (www.MedXonline.com), we isolate and strengthen core muscles surrounding the spine. Research has shown the MedX Exercise System obtains the best patient outcomes based on objective measures not solely on subjective pain ratings. Other treatment modalities include: Manual Therapy Techniques, Orthotics, Traction, and Orthopaedic Bracing.
Using our in-house orthotics lab, we assess gait and foot mechanics to determine the best product for your condition. We’re one of the few providers in the region offering both customized and over-the-counter orthotics. Physical Therapist, Jennifer Wilkins, has over 20 years of experience treating foot and ankle conditions and has completed Phases I and II of When the Foot Hits the Ground continuing education courses
Whether recovering from surgery, preventing a sports injury, or just seeking more support, our therapists are there to help. The right brace with the right fit is critical in preventing further injury.We specialize in bracing of the spine, knee, ankle, elbow, wrist, and hand. Our Spine Brace System allows core muscles to work while supporting and protecting the spine, decreasing painful symptoms. With less pain, you feel better and can do more. We also provide knee braces designed for orthopaedic conditions such as ligament insufficiency, patella maltracking, or unloading an arthritic joint.
Aquatic Physical Therapy
Aquatic Physical Therapy uses water to facilitate healing and return of function. Water buoyancy decreases the amount of weight borne by the joints and can be useful for patients with osteoarthritis, healing fractured bones, or obesity. Our staff provides this therapy through a cooperative arrangement with the Warrenton Aquatic and Recreation Facility.

Making a few small changes in your diet now may make a world of difference in your medical future. We can help you in various areas such as weight management, understanding and controlling diabetes, or by providing a few general nutrition tips. Our Registered Dietitian is here to assist you in making healthy lifestyle choices. We provide this vital service by identifying your nutritional deficiencies and imbalances and customizing a nutritional program you can easily implement at home.
