We Help People Affected by Poor Balance Improve Mobility and Strength
Are You Worried About Falling and Badly Injuring Yourself?
Therafit Rehab is an Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation Facility in Woodlawn, Maryland, that offers state-of-the-art Adaptive Equipment and specializes in the improvement of poor balance — regardless of the cause. Our physical and occupational therapy programs have helped thousands of patients with multiple sclerosis, a stroke, Parkinson’s disease, etc., achieve more independence through better balance.
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 condition took a turn for the worse — envision confidently performing activities of daily living like you used to do.
We employ equipment like the Quadriciser (a patterning and strengthening device used to help your muscles’ memory), gait trainers, body-weight support systems, and more to help you walk with more steadiness and control.
As a licensed durable medical equipment (DME) provider, we can help outfit you with an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) or brace for toe-drop, or other supportive equipment, as needed.
AND, WE ACCEPT MOST INSURANCE COMPANIES.
We Specialize in Treatment for Poor Balance
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.

Indeed, a Balance Assessment is for You If:
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.
