If you’ve experienced an injury or surgery that has limited your athletic ability, our experts will work to get you back to your personal best. If you are planning an elective surgery, we can work with you even before the procedure to develop an exercise program that will assist in your recovery and facilitate a quicker return to function.
Our medically-based reconditioning program includes a one-on-one initial consultation to determine your ability and goals.
