Neck Pain

Convenient. Intensive. Highly personalized. I get more out of one house calls therapy session than a week’s worth at a clinic. And, there is no down time getting to and from. I will tell my friends to call First State Rehab At Home for results!

Stroke Rehab

Thanks for the time and personal attention you have provided my mom. She has looked forward to your therapy sessions and has been diligent about continuing with her homework. This is a fantastic service you are providing!

Lymphedema Therapy

My legs swelled up slowly. I even had to buy shoes that are 2 sizes longer and 3 widths wider than I would normally wear. I was finally diagnosed with lymphedema. I worked with Deb for 2 weeks. Now I am wearing all of my old favorite shoes and I can walk up the stairs without getting tired. She helped me get my life back!


I work harder with you in the home than I ever did in a clinic! When you show me how to do my exercises in my home, I know how to do them and where! Simple, but it has made a big difference!

Parkinson's Disease

Since I completed the LSVT BIG therapy, I am moving so much better all of the time! Working with you at my house made it “real world” and much more meaningful!

Lymphedema Therapy

My legs have been so swollen and heavy for years. Then Deb did lymphedema therapy with me. It took three weeks to reduce my legs back to their old size. I am now able to go upstairs to sleep in my bed. Walking is so easy now!
