Progressive Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation recognizes the special and changing needs of golden agers. We subscribe to the philosophy that it is important to maintain an active and productive lifestyle. Our goal is simply to help you do that by reducing pain and increasing motion and function to help you enjoy your life to the fullest.
A personalized approach
As one ages maintaining a previous level of fitness can get more challenging because many people lose flexibility, strength, or balance. Conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis or joint replacements can lead to pain and inhibit movement. We understand the challenges facing seniors and design custom programs to relieve pain in order to restore motion and function for an active lifestyle.
We don’t believe that the aging process has to negatively affect your lifestyle. In fact quite the opposite can be true with a little help. As you age, it is more important than ever to keep moving. Your body might be different and our approach may not be the same as that of a 40-year-old, but that doesn’t mean you can’t participate in sporting activities, mange daily chores and tasks or get involved in community activities.
Balance and gait
One of the most important functions that seniors must maintain is balance. Our number one priority is to evaluate all Medicare patients for risk of falling, as this is the cornerstone for maintaining good health as you age. Without proper balance every day activities become much more difficult. Even if you don’t think you could benefit from a little bit of balance, strength, and flexibility training, you probably could.

Whether you need rehabilitation for pain, an injury or surgical procedure, or want to improve your daily function and reduce the risk of falls, we used evidenced-based treatments to help you achieve your goals.
