Although the various therapists at Beaches Rehabilitation Center focus on a variety of specific body parts—the brain, the muscular system, and even the mouth—they share a single commitment to restoring wellness. But unlike a vindictive swarm of bees, wellness cannot exist in a vacuum. That's why the center ensures that returning clients can see the same therapists for each visit, creating working relationships and informed treatment plans adjusted to suit ailment and age.
The team members work to counteract the effects of several types of injuries. Their sports and orthopedic medicine department addresses aches that impact athletic performance with hands-on techniques to improve joint and muscle function. Industrial rehab programs alleviate work-a-day pain and prevent future discomfort through ergonomic inspections, which promote better posture by adjusting chairs and cutting the neckties of workers caught in paper shredders. Founder and president Anya Johnson, a speech and language pathologist, helps her patients with conditions from stuttering to facial paralysis and the effects of neurological disorders. The center's myriad other services include therapies for arthritis, prosthetic training, and preoperative and postoperative rehabilitation.
