IAM provides high quality physical therapy and rehabilitation as part of your treatment plan. We also offer comprehensive biomechanics training, which focuses on the forces muscles and gravity exert on the skeletal structure. This helps prevent injury and enhances sports performance.
After consulting with IAM specialists and your primary care physicians, our licensed physical therapists build a program custom-tailored to your needs.
Teamwork is critical to quality therapeutic care. From initial evaluation through recovery, our therapists maintain an open dialogue with you and every member of your health-care team.
You'll get personalized, hands-on care during each visit. And you'll learn first hand how our unique combination of therapy, experience and state-of-the-art equipment will help you quickly resume - and even enhance - your active lifestyle.
We can also provide physical therapy and rehabilitation at a variety of other facilities. Ask our surgical coordinator for a complete list of facilities from which to choose.
