New Approaches is in a 14,000 sq. foot building three blocks away from Munson Medical Center. The building was designed for brain injured clients; handicapped access, filtered lighting, and extra insulation in the walls for quiet treatment rooms. Click on each picture for a higher resolution image.
Reception– We share the building with Active Brace and Limb. If you need any orthotic equipment (braces, crutches, etc.), they provide an excellent service.
Dr Johnson’s Office
Physical Therapy Office– In this panoramic picture, you will see a flat screen TV in which the physical therapist can show 3D images of muscles/nerves that they working on in therapy.
Gym Area– In addition to treadmills, weights and assorted strength equipment, there is also a surround sound system with Xbox and Nintendo Wii (used in high level balance and coordination skill training). Physical Therapy sessions are on a one-to-one basis (the therapist works with one client at a time).
Lunch Room/Conference Room/Group Therapy Room–Every Monday at 11 AM, there is a support group for head injured clients. Our clients repeatedly state that being with other people with head injuries is a huge part of their support system. The room has a divided partition to allow us to also use the room as our lunch room. Staff and clients do not eat lunch in separate rooms. We try our very best to treat all clients like “family”.
