NEURO-RESTORATIVE

This is our elite one-on-one training program offering customized training prescriptions.  The focus is on restoring motor function, building strength and enhancing overall independence. A two-hour neurological evaluation helps identify motor and sensory deficits, which is then combined with our Developmental Activity Scale evaluation to create a baseline.  The cost is $200 and is required for admission into this program.  From there, sessions are typically two hours for non-ambulatory clients and one hour for ambulatory clients, during which we tap into the plasticity of the nervous system to enhance neuromuscular re-education of movement, balance, coordination, posture and proprioception.  We recommend 2-3 weekly sessions.  Click to apply.

PROJECT ARES

This is our clinical neuroscience program aimed to enhance quality of life and overall physical function for people living with brain health conditions like dizziness, balance and movement disorders, concussion, mild TBI, to name a few. 

Intensity matters when trying to create durable pathways for neural adaptation, thus this program is designed to vigorously harness the power of neuroplasticity for therapeutic outcomes.  A 3 hour diagnostic and neurological examination allow our team to identify what parts of the brain present functional deficits, where gait and postural corrections are most needed, and which holistic therapies can best accompany quality of life gains.  From this a custom treatment is carefully created to yield the greatest gains within each individual's recovery timeline.  From experience, this program structure works best when executed over 2 consecutive weeks - 10 days, weekends excluded.  We will work with each individual to reschedule routine appointments occurring during the 2 week period.  For outside appointments and obligations that support your rehabilitation goals, our team will work with you to accommodate a stress-free schedule. 

We offer a 6 week transformative program that builds upon the 2 week intensive, by continuing with three weekly sessions and tapering down.  We also offer an a-la-carte approach for individuals who are unable to complete our intensive and transformative models.  We follow up with all clients at 1 and 3 months.  Click to apply 

PHYSICAL THERAPY (neuro, vestibular, ortho)

Our Neurological and Vestibular Rehab physical therapy programs are lead by Dr. Liz Garcia and Dr. Stacy Davis.  As a team, we'll perform a comprehensive evaluation to assess impairments/limitations in mobility, strength, and/or balance. Pain and spasticity are examined as well. Together, each client and our team will create goals to restore function and independence. Treatment and care are one-on-one. Progress and program adjustments are continuously monitored.

To learn more program specifics, call us at 972-386-0701 and ask for info regarding our clinical programs. 

NOTE: For all client's interested in training with Dr. Garcia or Dr. Davis, a referral is required from a doctor for physical therapy to "evaluate and treat" prior to treatment.  This can be faxed directly to us at 1-888-319-1805.  Referral forms available. 

HAND THERAPY

Hand therapy is performed by an occupational or physical therapist for someone with a condition of the hands or upper extremity. At REACT, our physical therapist Liz Garcia PT, DPT focuses on therapy for hands and upper extremities after neurological injuries.

What can a therapist do for my hands?

A therapist provides rehabilitation after injury or disease to an upper extremity.  Treatment aims to promote return to limbs, and to manage the health of the hand and arm during recovery. The therapist can give recommendations for adaptive equipment or devices to improve function during the recovery process.

What does treatment look like?

A hand therapist uses a variety of techniques and tools, including activity and strength programs, orthotic fabrication and adjustment, management of pain and swelling, management of tone, and potentially wound or scar care.  They offer treatment that does not involve an operation. They aid with pain management, reducing sensitivity from nerve problems, learning to feel again after a nerve injury, home exercise programs to help with movement and strength. Splints are sometimes used to help prevent or improve stiffness. Rehabilitation involves learning to complete everyday tasks with special tools. Focus during treatment can also be on work-related tasks.

What kinds of techniques are used?

Techniques include:

  • Strengthening exercises for hands, arms, shoulders
  • Soft tissue manipulation for swelling, scar tissue, muscle tightness
  • Manual stretching and manipulation of tight joints and muscles
  • Desensitization and sensory re-education
  • Use of neuromuscular electrical stimulation from our RTI Xcite FES system. This system has over 40 pre-programmed, task specific activities such as grasp and release, a handwriting activity, lateral pinch, feeding and more - using 12 channels (versus the traditional 6) to allow our therapists to stimulate more muscles in proper sequencing.

LEGACY PROJECT

The Legacy Project is a unique group training program for adaptive athletes.  The idea was conceptualized by our Director Ryan Bachik.  He brought on specialists Matt Mitchell and Jen Brigham to help give life to the program and ensure that REACT quality training standards are met while delivering a high-intensity dynamic group training.  The Legacy Project is internally funded through our passionate donors and thus has no cost to the participants. Participants experience 72 hours of training every Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 10am - 12pm -- some weeks working individually to strengthen and improve upon goals set by each athlete and other weeks in groups to grow a bond that lives on past the 12 week program. Building confidence, endurance, strength and relationships, each athlete is given a unique opportunity to overcome their physical limitations and inspire others to achieve what many view as impossible.

The focusing on building endurance, strength and cardiovascular health.  Are you exhausted or intimidated by the thought of going to the grocery store alone, taking your kids to the park, meeting friends somewhere you've never been?  After completing the Legacy Project, clients say their fears are a thing of the past and they and have more confidence and strength to take on daily activities.  For more on Legacy Project, click the Legacy Project tab.

 

Additional gait training options are available!

 

ICARE GAIT TRAININGicare

This training regimen is ideal for individuals craving that feeling of being back in the gym, with the crucial task-specific repetition necessary for nervous system training (neuroplasticity).  This body-weight suspension elliptical is great when added to our Neuro-Restorative Training Program or as a stand alone training method.

  • Elliptical Gait Training
  • Active Load-Bearing
  • Enhanced Neuroplasticity Training

 

REWALK ROBOTIC EXOSKELETON

The ReWalk offers clients gait training in a wearable exoskeleton with motors at the hip and knee joints.  This program is great for individual's looking for that upright walking experience, allowing the individual to work on walking speed and distance, fluidity, balance and coordination.  The battery powered bionic legs move in response to the user's subtle changes in his/her center of gravity.  A forward tilt initiates the first step and repeated body shifting generates a sequence of steps.
