Center for Rehabilitation and Sports Excellence

University Orthopaedic Associates is the choice of weekend warriors and elite athletes alike when they need to come back from an injury better than before. Our Center for Rehabilitation and Sports Excellence offers both cutting-edge and established physical and occupational therapy and recovery treatments. Whether you’ve just had surgery, are coming off an injury or want to take your performance to the next level, you’ll find it at UOA.

At the Center for Rehabilitation and Sports Excellence, we provide:

Physical Therapy: Physical therapy is the branch of rehabilitative health that uses specific manual therapy techniques, specially designed exercises and equipment to help patients regain or improve their physical abilities. People use physical therapy as a primary treatment for some conditions and to speed recovery after surgical procedures.

Occupational and Hand Therapy: Occupational and hand therapy is the art and science of rehabilitating the upper extremities, which includes the hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders. It is a merging of occupational and physical therapy that combines comprehensive knowledge of the structure of the upper extremities with function and activity. It focuses on preventing, slowing or reversing medical conditions and restoring function of the upper extremities, as well as enhancing patients’ ability to perform everyday tasks.

Sports Performance & Wellness: University Orthopaedic Associates offers sports performance and wellness programs that focus on general fitness and better health, sports-specific training and injury prevention. Whether you are an elite athlete, a weekend warrior or someone who just wants to set some health and fitness goals with the guidance from a professional trainer, UOA Sports Performance & Wellness is the perfect choice.

Take the guesswork out of your workouts and enjoy the benefits of a safe environment whether you are doing one-on-one training or our unlimited group training. We educate our clients, enabling them to achieve their individual goals by providing each person with a customized evaluation program.

For injured athletes, our Bridge the Gap program will get you back to your pre-injury performance level—and beyond.

I would like to thank the entire physical therapy staff at UOA as my recovery from a total knee replacement was a positive experience thanks to the dedication and professional care I received. My therapist was Christine, who was very attentive and caring with each visit. All of the therapists seem to love their patients!
