Do You Have MS and Struggle with Daily Activities?

Therafit Rehab is an Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation Facility that offers state-of-the-art Adaptive Equipment and specializes in the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Our physical and occupational therapy programs have helped more than 2,000 MS patients realize a better quality of life over the last decade.

Our physical therapy treatments include stretching, strengthening, patterning (a form of exercise that helps the muscles remember movement), range of motion, and gait training. Our occupational therapists are wizards that help you return to “life as it was” before your MS took a turn for the worse — envision improved independence and function at activities of daily living.

We employ equipment like the Quadriciser (a patterning and strengthening device used to help your muscles’ memory), gait trainers, and body-weight support systems — to help you walk even if you can’t.

We offer five types of activity-based therapy: physical, occupational, speech, maintenance, and aquatic.

AND, WE ACCEPT MOST INSURANCE COMPANIES.

We Specialize in Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis

 

If you’re having difficulty walking because of fatigue, lack of strength, or your toes are having trouble clearing the ground, it can be frustrating. But not doing anything about it will only result in it getting worse. Studies have shown that repetitive motion can increase neuroplasticity and trigger muscle memory. That means that when you keep doing it and keep pressing on, your muscles remember how to perform.

We are gait experts, meaning we specialize in observing gait (walking) and then strengthening the muscles needed to correct the problems or symptoms we observe. And while some muscles might need strengthened, others might just need to be taught controlled, coordinated, and consistent movements. We have been doing it for more than 10 years and are very specialized to help you get back to doing the things you love.

If You’re Having an MS Flareup, Here Are 5 Things That Could Be Making It Worse:

You think it is normal for MS always just to get worse.

You're not moving or as mobile as you used to be, which might be contributing to weakness.

You tried some exercise videos you found online, but nothing is really working.

Everyone around you is telling you to "rest" or doing things for you.

You have tried physical or occupational therapy before, but it didn't really seem to do anything.

If you have ever thought about any of these or perhaps they have happened to you, then we would love to invite you to request a FREE consultation with one of our physical or occupational therapists to help find out what can be done for you. The fact that you are reading this or have tried any of these things is a good thing, because when you know what doesn’t work, you are one step closer to finding out what could work!

Use the link below to book your free MS consultation to get some real advice. Advice that you can do from home without the fear of having to book more appointments or be charged with any fees. Our goal is to help you to make the best possible decisions you can regarding your health and wellness.

Our Promise

Being a privately owned facility we believe that one-on-one time with a patient is the most important thing that we can give. And it is this one-on-one devoted attention that allows us to see the amazing results we do! In a system where everyone is trying to push you out of the door, we welcome you and embrace your time.

 

This is a “No-Plateau” Zone!

 

Yes, You Read That Correctly…

 

Medicare released a Maintenance Therapy Program. In this program, therapists can actually see you to maintain your current status or abilities. It is no longer based on PROGRESS now, rather Skilled and Medically Necessary Therapy. Meaning that as long as therapy is skilled and medically necessary to prevent a decline in condition, we can continue therapy regardless of progress towards a goal.

BUT… Many therapists DO NOT know this or even know how to bill for it. So instead, they still discharge patients due to a lack of progress towards a certain goal. They tell them:

“You have hit a plateau. We need to discharge you. Here are some exercises you can do at home.”

 

Tired of pointless exercise recommendations?

 

We also relate our therapy goals to specific things that you want to get back to doing. Then we match our treatments specifically to those goals. This is what makes therapy worth it to you. We will not just tell you, “Perform 2 sets of leg extensions at 10 reps with both legs,” then leave you to do them. Instead, if it is getting harder to walk around the grocery store or reach up to the top cabinet to put dishes away, we help you work specifically on those things. We take you through the balance, endurance, strength, and flexibility to be able to do all those tasks.

Furthermore, most of the time we are working towards controlled, coordinated, and intentional movements. This usually doesn’t even require strength! Rather it involves practicing the movements and making sure the muscle has the flexibility to move the way we need it to. Sometimes it takes a while and lots of practice to get the movements down.

Chances are you have also been told things like, “You will never be able to do that again,” or “You will always need to use the wheelchair (or walker/cane).” That’s simply not always TRUE.

Here are Just a Few Things Our Therapists Can Do for You:

Walk with better balance and control.

Help maintain energy throughout the day to avoid those "Bad MS Days."

Avoiding SITTING all day long with an activity program designed for you.

Decrease the time it takes to dress, cook, clean, and shower so you can enjoy more of your day.

Master transferring or standing up from a chair.

Gain independence.

Increase muscle STRENGTH and CONTROL.
