Maximized Performance

Are you ready to thrive again? Individuals enter therapy at all levels of injury and recovery. After participating in a comprehensive evaluation, we will work with you to customize a rehabilitation and lifestyle program to enable maximized performance and injury prevention. Many clients seek our professional guidance for Lifestyle OT in addition to their dynamic strengthening program. Lifestyle OT is modeled after USC’s Lifestyle Redesign® approach and was developed to help individuals improve health behaviors for management of chronic pain, chronic health conditions, and improve engagement in meaningful activities.
