This place is phenomenal! I’ve had back pain for years and the Dr Gillen and his staff have been so helpful with managing my pain. Great staff & equipment.

At Preferred Rehab, movement is medicine

Our Approach

1. Movement is Medicine: Research consistently proves the benefits of exercise for managing low back pain. Exercise strengthens the core muscles that support the spine, improves flexibility, enhances posture, and increases stability.

2. Tailored Approach: At Preferred Rehab we tailor treatment programs to your needs, considering factors such as the underlying cause of your pain, your goals, and your overall physical condition.

3. Core Strengthening: Core muscles, including the abdominal and back muscles, play a vital role in supporting your spine. We train these muscles to help you regain stability, reduce strain on the spine, and enhance overall function.

4. Flexibility and Stretching: We blend strength and endurance exercises with stretches and self mobilizations to improve your flexibility.

5. Aerobic Exercise: As you recover, it’s important to get back to regular aerobic exercise, such as walking, swimming, or cycling. Because aerobic exercise improves blood circulation and releases endorphins (natural pain-relieving hormones), we prescribe this as part of your at home program.

6. Long-Term Benefits: Maintaining exercise routines and physical activity levels beyond the initial treatment period is crucial for preventing recurrences. We help you get moving and stay moving long after your pain goes away.

Make a Change

Real People. Real Results

Everyone is So SO nice. Doctors are super professional and work efficiently to ensure treatment is going well and that the patient is getting taken care of. I’m honestly so happy to be part of this family.

I have been to several wellness centers and physical therapists over the years and I have to say this particular group of people are outstanding. You’re an old friend from the first moment you step into the building. If you have pain that doesn’t seem to want to dissipate on its own, come on by and let these awesome people work their magic (or science, who can say?) on you. They’ll have you feeling like you are ready to take on the world in no time.

If you are a teacher, part of a union, are a first responder, and/or work a manual labor job I highly recommend this place because Steve’s vision and values run through the staff and they all put in the effort to care for those who come in.
