It is our desire to maximize the quality of life for our short-term and long-term residents by maximizing outcomes and functional capabilities. Every resident who can benefit from appropriate therapy will be given our attention and the opportunity to maximize functional potentials. Shannon Gray in-patient therapy professionals take a holistic approach to all patient needs. We specialize in tailoring treatments to a wide variety of diagnoses and individuals. We are also one of the very few facilities that offer Vital Stim, which is the only FDA approved electrical stimulation device approved for treatment of dysphagia and swallowing difficulties.  All of our Speech-Language Pathologist has been certified as Vital Stim providers.  We look forward to offering the support and care needed to provide optimal independence to all of our clientele.

The Shannon Gray offers 1700+ square feet of therapy space - the largest in the state of North Carolina. Our facility includes the Hydroworx pool equipped with an underwater treadmill and real time video capability. We can produce DVDs to submit to your Orthopedic Surgeon to document gait and motion progress for post-surgery patients. In addition to having every major piece of equipment, we also have an “in house” automobile for transfer training.

Hydrotherapy can be used to treat arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and a variety of other issues. Doctors and scientists at both Texas A&M and the University of Idaho have concluded that study participants improved overall health without the joint trauma they would have experienced on land.
