Recovering from an injury, surgery, or chronic illness can be a stressful, uncertain time. That’s why the physical therapists at WestStar don’t just treat your condition – we’re here to treat you.
Every visitor to our 100+ California therapy centers is a person, not a project. We’re here for emotional support, in addition to the restorative treatments for your physical condition. We have a smile for every visitor, and our therapy patients will receive encouragement and positive reinforcement during the process.
Our services are designed to get you back to work, back to your active lifestyle, back to the ability level you had before your injury – and beyond.
WestStar’s Treatments Include:
Depending on your treatment needs, our therapists will combine aquatic therapy with traditional, “land-based” therapy to restore fitness, wellness and quality of life. Our techniques will improve your strength, flexibility, range of motion, and physical health.
Aquatic therapy, also called pool or water therapy, is for patients starting the physical rehabilitation process who aren’t ready for traditional land-based therapy. The water’s buoyancy supports the body, eases impact on joints, provides resistance to movement, and reduces pain in a relaxing environment.
Acupuncture, the application of thin needles through a patient’s skin, is a pain relieving method used to increase blood flow and stimulate the body’s natural painkillers. Traditional Chinese medicine holds that acupuncture balances the body’s energy flow and restores physical, emotional and mental wellness.
Certified Hand Therapy
Hand therapy includes rehabilitation of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder girdle. Hand therapists work to restore function, prevent dysfunction, and/or reverse the progression of pathology to enhance an individual’s ability to execute tasks and to participate fully in life situations.
Occupational therapy is designed to help individuals recovering from injuries or chronic conditions regain the skills and physical abilities they need to participate in everyday and work-related activities.
