Why choose Prevea therapy to help you heal as fully as possible?

When part of your body isn’t working how it should, your overall health can suffer. No one understands that better than Prevea Occupational Therapy. 

Prevea Therapy Institute has a team of physical, occupational and speech therapists all with one goal in mind: to help you achieve the best possible outcome, so you can maximize your independence and quality of life. 

Through skilled physical, occupational and speech therapy, we’re helping our patients avoid surgery, prepare for and recover from surgery, relieve pain and manage chronic conditions. We’ll work closely with you and your provider to design a treatment plan that best meets your specific needs. Our comprehensive evaluation and treatment options can help you restore function and develop to your highest degree of independence. Whether you need inpatient, outpatient or home health therapy, we’re here to provide therapy right where you need it.

Dry needling
Prevea therapy offers trigger point dry needling to help rapidly decrease pain and increase the mobility of your muscles. Trigger point dry needling is a minimally invasive technique that uses sterile, thin, filament needles to de-activate muscular trigger points. Sometimes, it may be combined with electrical stimulation to help with comfort and overall results.
Therapy for ear, nose and throat

Therapy for ENT can help with conditions affecting the ears and eyes (making it difficult to read, disturb your balance or make you feel dizzy) as well as overcome or manage your conditions affecting your nose or throat (speaking clearly, swallowing or breathing properly a struggle).

For patients dealing with dizziness or poor balance — or any condition that affects the voice, swallowing or airway — our therapy specialists will develop a personalized plan to address their specific need. We offer the most advanced treatments available, to help patients regain balance and improve swallowing and communication.

You can trust us to provide physical, occupational and speech therapy that enhances and improves life, using the latest technology and treatment techniques. Whichever obstacle you’re facing, it can affect your happiness and quality of life. With the help of Prevea’s specialists, it doesn’t have to. We will work with you and your primary care provider to decrease your symptoms and help you complete activities with ease. 

Therapy for edema and lymphedema

Edema means swelling caused by fluid in your body’s tissues. It usually occurs in the feet, ankles and legs, but it can involve your entire body. This swelling may be caused by disease (such as congestive heart failure, kidney disease and thyroid disorders), a birth defect, surgery, cancer treatment or other problems.

Lymphedema is swelling caused by a build-up of lymph fluid in the body. The lymph system (lymphatic vessels) filters and drains excess fluid in your body. If the lymph system is damaged, the fluid builds up and causes swelling. Lymphedema is recognized as a complication following cancer treatment; however, it can develop from edema that is not managed. In rare instances, a person is born with a challenged lymphatic system.

Treatment options from Prevea’s expert team of therapists include:

  • Chronic venous problems or post blood clot
  • Congenital (primary) lymphedema
  • Cording or auxiliary web syndrome (development of tissue that feels web-like and restricts movement)
  • Decreased ability to perform activities of daily living
  • Decreased range of motion
