The Full Range of Therapy Services

Therapy is an extremely important component of treatment, especially for surgical cases. Therapy provides relief from chronic pain; improves motion, strength and flexibility; and often can help patients avoid surgery altogether. Our physical therapists and hand therapists are certified in their specialties, having demonstrated the highest level of professional expertise.

Patients receive individualized treatment that is developed in collaboration with their attending physician or physician's assistant. We are a patient-centered facility, striving to provide the best hands-on treatment, integrated with your physician's involvement and oversight, for an exceptional level of care.

We offer the full scope of therapy rehabilitation. Our therapy services include:

Physical Therapy

Physicial Therapy is most often used pre- and post-surgery and for the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Our physical therapy practice also includes subspecialty sports therapists who understand the powerful physical demands placed upon athletes. Our broad range of physical therapy services are performed at our 2 Riverview Drive facilities in Danbury.

Hand Therapy

As part of The Hand Center, we offer subspecialty rehabilitation for the upper limb, including the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Hand rehabilitation performed by certified hand therapists is offered at our 2 Riverview Drive office in Danbury.

Customized Evaluation and Treatment

A Physical Therapist/Occupational Therapist is responsible by law to evaluate your specific area of injury/dysfunction. The therapist will review your history and prescription and then go through an individualized, physical assessment. This will lead to identification of deficits to be addressed during the course of your treatment. From this evaluation, a treatment plan will be devised and shared with you. After the plan is formulated, treatment will commence using a variety of modalities and procedures always performed by licensed professionals. Rehabilitation technicians are there to assist the therapists, but not to provide treatment.

Specialty Services

Sports Medicine - Our Danbury office is staffed specifically to address the needs of an active population. In this setting, athletes, even those of the weekend variety, are able to be seen by a team of MDs, PAs, PTs and ATCs whose special expertise is the safe return to play/participation.

Total Joint Program – Our office at 2 Riverview Drive in Danbury is specifically staffed to address the needs of the preoperative and postoperative total joint patient. We offer a preoperative class at convenient times, led by a physical therapist who has himself undergone a joint replacement. He will guide you through this process and answer your general and specific questions. Please watch our video on this topic: One Man's Journey.

Pilates – The use of our Pilates Reformer may be recommended as an integral part of your rehabilitation. Our certified specialist will help to determine if this method will be appropriate for you. Classes are ongoing, and self-pay options are available.

Splinting and Bracing (Orthoses Fabrication)– Our Occupational Therapists are also certified hand therapists. They work closely with our surgeons to determine who will benefit from customized splints (orthoses) and braces for upper extremity dysfunction. Your splint or brace (orthosis) will be effective in minimizing pain and aiding in recovery.

Orthotics – Our physical therapy specialist will evaluate the need for customized shoe inserts or help to determine if noncustom, off-the-shelf devices are appropriate for you. Custom orthotics are frequently not reimbursed by insurance; we will work with your insurer to help determine coverage options.

Phase 4 – This self-pay, cash-based program is an extension of your gym exercise program. It allows you to continue your program on your own under the supervision of our specialists. Your therapist, who is knowledgeable about your progress and current needs, will follow you during your session but without the hands-on component. Your exercises will be monitored by our staff and modified as appropriate as you progress.

Planning For Your Visit

Office Hours:

Monday - Thursday: 7:00 am to 7:00 pm ( with the last patient scheduled at 6pm)

Fridays: 7:00 am to 5:00 pm (with the last patient scheduled at 4pm)

Scheduling: We try to accommodate your needs for days and times. We prefer to give you the consistent care of one or two therapists. Your therapist will be glad to make recommendation for another therapist when your primary caregiver is off or on vacation. Please be on time for your scheduled appointments: this shows respect for those patients scheduled before and after you. Generally you will be here for 45 minutes to an hour.

Apparel: You should wear comfortable clothing and shoes that are supportive. Your clothes should enable you to exercise easily and comfortably. Loose, comfortable clothing also better allows the therapists to reach the affected area without constriction.

Missed Appointments and Cancellations: It is our policy that you will be charged a $25.00 fee for appointments not kept. Cancellations must be made 24 hours ahead of the appointed time, barring a true emergency. The $25.00 fee will be charged directly to you. Insurance will not cover this charge.

We strive to provide excellence in care for all aspects of your therapy program, and look forward to helping you on the road to recovery and renewed health and activity.
