Expands Sentara Rehabilitation Network
April 7, 2009 – Chesapeake, Virginia – Sentara opens its newest therapy center in Chesapeake, expanding the Sentara Rehabilitation Network.
A physical therapist specially certified in McKenzie spine therapy, an athletic trainer, and support team offer appointments Monday through Friday beginning at 8 a.m., with convenient evening hours Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Located directly across from Grassfield High School, the center offers a full range of physical therapy services including geriatric rehabilitation and orthopedic, sports medicine, and athletic training.
People who are planning or recovering from surgery, suffering from neck, shoulder and back pain, or experiencing limited mobility may benefit from the expert skills of Sentara physical therapists.
Even before Grassfield Therapy Center’s official opening, the center had patients signed up, and 68-year-old Pat MacCauley was one of them.
“Actually, I was their first patient,” says MacCauley who is suffering from a frozen shoulder. The center is literally five minutes from her home and more convenient for her remaining visits.
The staff at Grassfield Therapy Center is helping patients decrease pain and quickly return to their optimal level of activity. Among the advanced techniques and equipment at the center are electrical and neuro-muscular stimulation, state-of-the-art decompression equipment used to relieve tension of back and neck muscles, and strengthening equipment used to increase knee and shoulder range of motion.
“The physical therapist has already helped stretch my shoulder to get the movement back,” says MacCauley.
