Serving those with arthritis, balance problems, Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia, acute or chronic pain, and post-surgical conditions.

No matter what your condition is,

Thrive will equip you with the strength, knowledge and confidence to live your best life.

Have you been told that this is something that you just have to live with or that this is just part of the “normal aging” process?

Leaving you lost and defeated. Not sure where to go or what to do. 

At Thrive Physical Therapy and Wellness we believe seniors deserve to live alive and “Thrive”. We recognize every patient as a distinct individual and tailor our approach to improving and maintaining your health and mobility.

Our mission is to change the lives of those who suffer from acute or chronic conditions. We are always striving to help you work toward your personal goals.

Dr. Bernadette Schwai, PT, DPT, will provide you with a personalized program in the comfort of your own home. She will utilize knowledge, evidence-based strategies, and powerful tools to empower you to get your life back and start doing the things you love again.


Did your doctor recommend physical therapy but you have no way of getting there?

Don’t let limited mobility or lack of transportation stop you from getting the treatment you need to live your best life.

When you have an acute or chronic condition or just trying to age in place, we understand it is not always easy to get out of your house. We come to your home, so you can be treated in the comfort of your surroundings. Whether it be in your personal home, a facility, assisted living or the gym in your facility, we can come to you.

By coming to your home, we remove the obstacles of transportation, bad weather, and ensure continuity of care.

At Thrive, we believe in a personalized approach to treating patients for better quality of care. Our sessions are provided one on one, allowing YOU to be our main focus. Contact us today to schedule an appointment! 

Are you having more difficulty doing the things you love due to balance problems, falls, acute injury or pain? Does it make you afraid to leave the house?

No one wants to go to the hospital. One-third of people 65 years and older have one or more falls in a year, and it is one of the main reasons older adults are admitted to the hospital or nursing homes.

Believe or not most people think they can’t improve their balance. I’ve heard time and time again, “I can’t do that because I have bad balance.” Don’t limit your mobility due to balance deficits.

Whether it is from the normal aging process, a previous surgery or an acute or chronic condition, like Parkinson’s Disease, there are specific techniques that can improve your balance. We will tailor them to your needs to minimize your risk for falls. Leaving you feeling liberated and not afraid to leave your home.

Have you had physical therapy and declined after being discharged because you didn’t feel comfortable to exercise on your own, or you were unable to motivate yourself to exercise?

Well, you’re not alone. Many people make great gains with physical therapy but then back slide after they have been discharged.

Don’t let all of your hard work go to waste. You’ve worked too hard to not enjoy your new mobility, independence and freedom.

We understand how difficult it is to keep up with your exercises on your own.

At Thrive, we believe in treating the whole person and continuing to help you throughout your journey. We want to equip you with the tools to continue to live within your condition, even after you have been discharged.

For that reason, we offer a one on one in-home wellness service to help keep you moving.

Your journey shouldn’t end when your physical therapy ends. For those suffering from an acute or chronic condition or just going through the aging process, exercise is your daily dose of medicine! 

Do you suffer from Parkinson’s Disease or another neurological condition, such as a Stroke?

At Thrive Physical Therapy and Wellness, Dr. Bernadette Schwai, PT, DPT, will lay out a plan of attack for you to improve your quality of life.

She has been specially trained and certified in the use of an evidence-based program that has been specifically designed for those with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological disorders.

This program is designed to help you move better, feel more energized, and improve your confidence, allowing you to enjoy life again.

For those with Parkinson’s Disease, exercise has been proven to slow the progression of the disease process and decrease the severity of some motor and non-motor symptoms.

Research shows that exercise does more for your disease process than your medication. Giving the term “use it or lose it,” a whole new meaning for those with Parkinson’s Disease.
