About Physical Therapy & Occupational Therapy

Physical therapy (PT) and/or occupational therapy (OT) are vital components of the orthopedic healing process. Physical therapists can help patients achieve a level of mobility and freedom from pain that can be obtained no other way. Occupational therapists are hand and arm specialists who can also help patients develop new daily living skills when the use of the hand is impacted.

Both PT and OT professionals can help patients avoid or recovery from surgery.

OPA Physical Therapy Centers

Our lead therapist Mark Lange, PT, OCS, MBA/A, designed OPA’s facilities from the ground up and recruited a team of outstanding therapists to support, instruct and inspire patients. 

We treat people of all ages, fitness levels and health conditions and take pride in helping them achieve their recovery goals, whether its an elite athlete needing to return to peak performance, a worker getting back to work or a grandmother wanting to play with grandchildren. 

All three PT facilities feature:

  • Experienced providers with a high level of expertise in their field. 
  • The latest tools &  equipment, including apps to help facilitate your home exercises.
  • Private evaluation rooms.
  • Massage Therapy.
