Peak Resources in-house therapy team, Summit Therapy Services, is proud to offer adults across North Carolina various rehabilitation services to help them improve their daily lives. We currently provide physical, occupational and speech therapy at all of our various locations.
Physical therapy is designed to re-educate muscles to work, retrain other parts of the body to function for those parts which cannot, and teach clients how to manage with their disability with or without equipment. This education process is performed mainly through exercises and function skill training. Our Physical Therapy program concentrates on mobility in bed, a wheelchair or when walking. We accomplish this mobility training by performing strengthening, range of motion, balance and coordination exercises with the patient. Our Physical Therapists may use all or a combination of the following: electrical stimulation, ultrasound, biofeedback or heat and cold modalities with patient exercises.
