The Body Center Physical Therapy has been a source for high skilled orthopedic and spine rehabilitation in Claremont since 2006. As a small therapist owned and operated practice we are also able to provide rehabilitation to special populations in a small and personal setting.
Our clinical staff consists of doctoral trained physical therapists who are board certified in orthopedic rehabilitation. The clinical reasoning and problem solving approach mastered in orthopedics is applied to movement dysfunctions in other systems with superior results.
- Movement Dysfunction
Patients with movement dysfunctions resulting from neurological injuries or diseases have also benefited from our personalized rehabilitation.
- Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction
Pelvic floor muscle dysfunction resulting in urinary incontinence, has been effectively treated using a computer based biofeedback program. Our exercise program begins with an awareness and isolation of the pelvic floor musculature and a progression to more strenuous exercise utilizing the Pilates Reformer apparatus.
- Walking Intolerance
Walking intolerance due to either degenerative disc disease or cardiovascular disease can often be improved with Physical Therapy. We take a comprehensive approach to building walking tolerance utilizing cardiovascular, Pilates and manual therapy treatment interventions to address impairments to walking function. Monitoring with pulse oximeters and exertional scales ensures exercise interventions are performed in the safest manner possible.

- Custom Foot Orthotics
Custom foot orthotics can have a profound positive effect on walking function and the reduction of foot pain and dysfunction.
