Brain injury offers unique challenges for Physical Therapy. As a result of those unique challenges, TLC uses some of the latest in state-of-the-art technology and techniques to help brain injured individuals achieve their physical goals. Our Physical Therapy staff takes a functional, community based approach to therapy in helping patients achieve lost skills. Because TLC is located in the heart of the community, our therapists can provide physical therapy geared to community reentry by utilizing the surrounding community.
Our physical therapists are brain injury professionals trained to address cognitive deficits in the course of addressing mobility issues. They must contend with issues of sequencing, memory, attention/concentration, visual/spatial deficits and self awareness within the context of the physical therapy session.
