Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation

We are here to help you find what you need.
Nashoba's Center for Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation provides quality care and commitment to all of our patients requiring any form of therapy.

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapy team addresses mobility issues that are a result of sports- or work-related injuries, muscle strains, joint sprains, and other orthopedic or neurological disorders. Your individual program will be designed to decrease pain, improve mobility and function, and increase strength, range of motion and endurance, therefore improving your quality of life.

Through therapeutic exercise, specialized equipment education and hands-on techniques, our therapists will help you reach your goals. Aquatic therapy is also available as an adjunct to physical therapy provided in the clinic. Physical therapy can also provide pain control and relief through hands-on techniques.

Specialty programs include:

  • Aquatic therapy
  • Spine rehabilitation
  • Sports injury prevention and management
  • Graston Technique
  • Vestibular rehabilitation
  • Strength training and conditioning
  • Pre-work functional screens
  • Kinesiotaping
  • FMS

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists are skilled in addressing daily task limitations that are a result of various medical, developmental or surgical conditions. Your therapist will design and implement an individualized treatment program and instruct you in the techniques that you need to overcome or adapt to limitations and regain independence. Programs may include exercise, education on conserving energy, joint protection techniques, activity modification, adaptive or assistive devices, and splinting.

Special programs include:

  • Hand therapy by certified hand therapists
  • Neurological rehabilitation
  • Splinting and orthotics

Aquatic Therapy

Our therapy pool offers aquatic therapy for patients with orthopedic and neurological disorders who experience symptoms such as pain, weakness, weight bearing restrictions after surgery, swelling, and/or changes in muscle tone. This therapy combines traditional exercise with the water's buoyancy to enhance and accelerate the rehabilitation process. We have morning hours available at the pool located at The Groton School Athletic Center.

Speech-Language Therapy

Communication is essential to learning, working, and social interaction. Impaired communication can affect every aspect of a person's life. Our certified professionals work with patients as a team to help achieve optimum communication skills.

Our speech-language pathologist will help identify and treat many types of speech and language disorders, including stuttering or swallowing (dysphasia), and those that are a result of stroke, developmental delay, laryngectomy, cleft palate or head injury. Following a thorough diagnostic evaluation, a specialized individual treatment program will be developed specifically for each patient.
