Part of our commitment to our patients is to provide care that is consistent with current research and expert advice. We improve the care to our patients by providing our therapists with ongoing access to continuing education by leaders in the medical field.
Recently, one of our therapists, Adam Westenhofer, attended the 2024 annual meeting for the American Association for Hand Surgery (AAHS) to learn from the leaders in arm and hand surgeries/conditions and how to best treat them. One of the goals of the AAHS is to "provide innovative and high-quality education to surgeons, therapists, residents, fellows and all professionals dedicated to hand care".
Here at Vida Therapy Group we strive for excellence so that you can get the best care. Continued education in therapy in Deming helps serve our community. Our therapists have a combined 45+ years of experience from various locations throughout the USA. Contact us to see how we can help you live your best life.
