We treat patients suffering from dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, disequilibrium, and heightened fall risk with therapy that’s proven to help reduce the occurrence of falling. We offer expertise in guiding patients from the clearance of acute vertigo, all the way through vestibular rehabilitation therapy. Pappas OPT has been certified by the American Institute of Balance as part of its Worldwide Network of Vestibular and Equilibrium Specialists.
Helping patients get back to work after injury or surgery, our experienced physical and occupational therapists are experts. Our Work Conditioning Program emphasizes injury prevention, wellness and returning to work safely. For Workers’ Compensation patients we offer Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE); a validated, research-based evaluation extrapolated for the 8-hour workday.
Too often, concussions go untreated. Rather than just examining the basic signs, we assess your emotional, vestibular, visual, cognitive, and exertion health with evidence-based training and the most up-to-date methods. Pappas OPT provides innovative treatment to ease your worries when it comes to concussions, migraines and even headaches.
Pelvic floor therapy has been proven to alleviate urinary and fecal incontinence, urinary frequency and urgency, bowel urgency, constipation, vaginismus, generalized chronic pelvic pain and painful bladder syndrome. Pappas OPT delivers this therapy with the discretion, care and respect patients deserve.
Frequently untreated, chronic pain symptoms include headache, lower back pain, arthritis pain, and neurogenic pain. Pappas OPT focuses on two critical elements when it comes to alleviating your pain: education and movement. The combination of therapeutic neuroscience education (TNE) and movement plans designed to address your unique symptoms has had significant success in helping patients deal with persistent pain.
