ONS Physical Therapy
ONS state-of-the-art physical therapy centers in Greenwich, Harrison, Stamford and Wilton are an integral part of all ONS locations, allowing physicians and physical therapists to work together to achieve the greatest results for patients.
Our exceptional team of licensed physical and certified hand therapists develop a personalized treatment program that ensures a patient’s goals are achieved with the maximum return of function possible. ONS therapists hold advanced degrees and specialty certifications to evaluate, manage, and treat disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system, and rehabilitate patients recovering from orthopedic or spine surgery. Our certified occupational hand therapists (OTs and CPTs) use a variety of techniques and custom splinting to restore proper function to the hands of patients of all ages. ONS physical therapists are professionally licensed by the State of Connecticut and/or New York.
All ONS physical therapists work with patients to reduce pain and restore strength, mobility and function. Therapeutic exercise treatment programs may include sports-specific training, plyometrics, dynamic lumbar stabilization, AI stretching, postural retraining. Additionally, they provide sports performance services such as motion analysis, and return-to-play testing and training.
