From Research to Results 


Our research and innovation programs focus on prevention, health monitoring and rehabilitation, addressing everything from cardiovascular health to neurological diseases to orthopedics to aging to pediatrics and so much more. Treatments in our physical therapy clinics are designed to prevent patients from having surgery, while online concussion prevention programs teach youth soccer coaches how to keep developing players healthy and on the field longer.
