Equipment needs are evaluated and appropriate recommendations are made.

Some conditions include repetitive stress syndrome and work-related injuries, tendon and nerve injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, cubital tunnel syndrome, De Quervain Syndrome, rotator cuff injuries, epicondylitis and fractures.
- Manual Lymph Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapies
Manual Lymph Drainage is an effective, gentle, hands-on skin technique that works to reduce the swelling in limbs by removing excess fluid and reducing any fibrotic build up caused by lymphedema. Secondary lymphedema can develop in patients who have had a mastectomy or lumpectomy, axillary or inguinal node dissection, gynecological surgery, kidney, prostate, colon, melanoma or other cancer removal surgery, and/or radiation therapy. It can occur any time after cancer therapy including during postoperative care and months or years later. It also develops pathways that continue this process after the therapy is completed.
- Pediatric and Adult Dysphagia Treatment
Our dysphagia team consists of physical, occupational and speech therapists who are involved in the evaluation and treatment of pediatric and adult dysphagia. The therapists evaluate the patient's feeding, swallowing and oral motor control and make recommendations regarding feeding and swallowing strategies.
