Why is therapy important?

Our Recovery and Reconditioning Program was developed in partnership with leading physicians, including physiatrists, infectious disease specialists and physical and occupational therapists. It focuses on identifying key areas of physical weakness in patients recovering from COVID-19 as well as other illnesses and conditions.

Following the evidence-informed program guidelines, our licensed physical and occupational therapists will develop a plan of care tailored to your specific needs and goals. During each session, we will monitor your vital signs and symptoms to ensure your safety. Working together, we will increase your tolerance based on activities so you can start to get back to the things that you enjoy.

Depending on your condition, physical ability and comfort level, we are able to treat you in our centers, or virtually via telerehab. In-person appointments will follow CDC, state as well as our own clinical guidelines to ensure safety while progressing toward your goals. 

Please know that we continue to require masking for all patients, staff and visitors.
