If you or your loved one has suffered a stroke recently or in the past, you have been faced with the decision of where to go for rehabilitation.  Did you know that intensive and comprehensive therapy is critical for the highest level of recovery in the first 90 days post stroke?  Did you know that even those that have had a stroke years ago can benefit from intermittent therapy services to ensure they maintain the highest level of function?  The Wellness Center at the Grand Traverse Pavilions is your number one choice!

Why choose the Wellness Center?

The Wellness Center offers physical, speech, and occupational therapy services in one location.  Our intimate clinic and strict adherence to infection control protocols ensures that you or your loved one will feel comfortable and safe during your therapy sessions. 

Wellness Center therapists have a breadth of advanced education in order to address all of your needs including attending classes in post stroke rehab at the Rehab Institute of Chicago, visual and perceptual impairments, SAEBO certification and equipment for the treatment of the upper extremity, custom splinting, manual therapy, vestibular (dizziness) treatment, voice and swallow treatment, and exercise prescription to name a few. 

Another unique feature of the Wellness Center is the availability of aquatic therapy in our 92 degree therapeutic pool.  Aquatic therapy is an effective therapeutic modality in stroke recovery in combination with traditional PT and OT.  Therapy in the water allows the patient greater mobility because body weight is decreased significantly (up to 90%). Since the water aids balance, the patient can perform advanced balance and gait training in a safe and comfortable environment. Buoyancy allows for increased success in movements with decreased effort. Some stroke survivors, who cannot walk on land, find it quite easy to stand up and even walk in a pool.
