Physical Rehabilitation Options
We offer a free initial evaluation and Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) add-ons for those who qualify. The evaluation gives the client an opportunity to share strengths gained from physical therapy and future goals with PTW’s training staff. It also allows the trainer to assess the client’s current abilities and develop an exercise program that addresses the individual’s specific needs.
After this initial evaluation, individuals may choose from the following training options:
Activity-Based Exercise Program: Weekly sessions led by trainers at our specially equipped gym. ABT is designed to help you stay fit using out special adaptive equipment for strength training, stretching, balance, gait training and endurance.
Stretch Sessions: Existing clients can add thirty-minute stretching sessions to supplement their workouts.
How We Operate
Clients pay an hourly fee for personalized training. These fees do not fully cover operating expenses. The balance is obtained through fundraising activities, grants, and donations.
Spark Physical Therapy
Weekly sessions with a Physical Therapist help improve functional independence in activities of daily living. PT utilizes manual therapy skills including soft tissue mobilization, electrical stimulation, and cold laser therapy to address pain.
