Optimum Performance Therapy

Outpatient Rehabilitation Restores Quality of Life, Functionality

Optimum Performance Therapy helps patients reach their maximum potential during recovery from an orthopedic injury or surgery. Treatment plans are unique to specific patient needs. And, unlike some rehabilitation centers, Optimum Performance Therapy provides one-to-one rehabilitation for each patient. Every physical or occupational therapy session is individually directed, with hands-on care, as the therapist carefully monitors progress.
