Many types of pain, such as headaches, migraine, ankle and foot problems, back and neck pain, can be reduced with therapy.  Physical and occupational therapy are often an important part of recovery from orthopedic surgeries and neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease and Stroke.  Conditions as varied as arthritis, balance disorders, vertigo, Bell’s Palsy, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder and hand impairment as well as general weakness and decline in function are all treated with physical and occupational therapy.
