Disease Management​

Early intervention and continued care to slow and prevent disability

Disease Management focuses on the key areas critical for long-term management: Mobility & Functional Training, Task & Environmental Adaptation, and Education for Health Literacy & Self-Management. By empowering patients with knowledge and tools, the negative health and functional effects of a chronic disease condition can be minimized or delayed. Specialized programs manage:

Movement & Mobility:

For the patient at risk for falls and experiencing a decline in ability to transfer, stand, ambulate, balance, and perform ADLs.

Vestibular Rehabilitation:

Provided by therapists trained and certified in VRT, the program identifies and then remediates deficits in the balance system that lead to symptoms of dizziness and vertigo including BPPV.

Live LARGE Parkinson’s Program:

High amplitude exercise program utilizing the latest research-based techniques in an interdisciplinary program of PT/OT and SLP services.

Cardiopulmonary/COPD:

Disease management and functional restoration targeting 90% oxygen titration during activity.

Arthritis Management:

An individualized and disease-specific therapeutic program to restore range of motion, increase strength, and decrease pain without aggravation of symptoms.

Diabetic Program:
