THERAPY SERVICES

Rehabilitation can be a stressful, emotional and demanding process. At Western Reserve Hospital, we work to alleviate not only the pain, but also the frustrations that accompany any injury. Our experienced and highly-trained therapists take a proactive approach by implementing our safe, effective treatment options to get you moving again. Using therapeutic exercises, stretching and manual techniques to decrease pain and restore range of motion and strength, we enable you to resume your lifestyle in comfort as soon as possible.

At our three convenient locations, we provide convenient appointment scheduling and close supervision throughout your treatment to ensure your program is performed safely and correctly. We offer a strong educational component to our care and work hard to teach you how to manage your recovery and prevent future injury.
