  • Joint and soft tissue mobilization to increase range-of-motion
  • Wound care

  • Education and training in areas such as dressing, bathing, eating and grooming

  • Strengthening and coordination exercises
  • Exercises to reduce the effects of arthritis or other conditions to maintain normal joint movement
