Our mission is to provide the community with professional and progressive physical therapy and wellness services in a caring and nurturing environment, and to facilitate healing and optimum health for all our clients.

Physical Therapy at The Cypress Center begins with a thorough initial evaluation and skilled assessment in order to determine each client's personalized course of treatment. We set the highest standard of care with each treatment session being 50 minutes of one-on-one manual and/or exercise therapy with a licensed physical therapist. Additionally, we offer Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, Women's Health, Private Yoga, and individual Pilates instruction by certified instructors.

When I came to The Cypress Center with back and shoulder problems in early January I had a large cloud hanging over my head. But thanks to all of you my shoulder pain is virtually gone and my back has come leaps and bounds and is still making progress.

Pilates for Rehabilitation explains how to incorporate Pilates exercises into rehabilitation programs to heal injuries, improve core strength, promote efficient movement, and help manage pain.  In addition to step-by-step instructions for Pilates apparatus and mat work, you will learn the indications and contraindications of each exercise and the primary muscles involved so you can determine when the exercise is appropriate for each client. Modifications and progressions allow for adaptation of exercises based on the stage of rehabilitation or the severity of the injury or condition being treated. Suggested exercise programs, organized by common orthopedic injuries in anatomical regions, offer the flexibility to tailor a program to the specific needs of each client.
