The Pieters Family Life Center, in partnership with Rochester Regional Health System, formerly Unity Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, offers a full range of orthopedic, sports, general physical rehabilitation services, as well as aquatic therapy. We specialize in:
Participants must have a doctor’s prescription in order to participate. We accept most insurance carriers.
Providing outpatient therapy services and group/individualized fitness programs all in one place is unique to the Pieters Family Life Center. “Exercise plays a crucial role in healing and recovering from disease,” explains Michelle Labossiere-Hall, director of therapeutic advancement at the PFLC. “Physical therapists often pre-scribe specific exercises to patients as part of their treatment regimen. Having access to the fitness center allows therapists here to work with clients on the very same equipment a patient will use once they are discharged from therapy.”
At the completion of your therapy experience, our therapists can refer you to appropriate fitness classes at the Life Center as you continue your road to recovery. In addition, we offer low-cost memberships so you can continue your prescribed exercises once rehabilitation is complete.
Nancy Tantalo receives physical therapy in the HydroWorx 2000 therapy pool at the Pieters Family Life Center, where she is making progress toward being able to leave her wheelchair and walk on her own again.
After surgery on her legs, Nancy required braces that made walking painful and difficult, so the opportunity for her to walk in the pool, which features a variable-speed treadmill floor, has been incredibly beneficial. “Heritage and this pool are the miracle we’ve been hoping for,” said Auggie Tantalo, Nancy’s father. “We haven’t given up hope that she will one day walk on her own again.”
