Build Strength and Flexibility with Physical Therapy
Recovering your normal, active lifestyle after a broken bone, illness or joint replacement surgery can take time. That’s why our rehabilitation therapy services team is here to help you move freely again, whether you’re recovering from a stroke, injury, arthritis, major surgery, illness, nerve, muscle disorders or chronic pain.
Our rehabilitation team offers you:
- Physical therapy: Our physical therapists evaluate, treat and educate you or your loved one to help prevent or alleviate pain and dysfunction. To restore mobility and function, our physical therapists employ a variety of treatment techniques to increase motion, increase strength, improve balance and decrease pain.
- Occupational therapy: Occupational therapy is generally recommended following a stroke, accident or illness. Patients participate in directed activities to increase strength and coordination. Hand therapy, massage and other techniques are used to decrease pain, while exercise increases motion. Our therapists teach simplified ways to perform self-care, household and work activities with special aids or assistive devices.
- Speech and language pathology: Our speech and language pathologists work with patients to recover speech and swallowing capabilities lost due to stroke or trauma. In addition, persons of all ages can be evaluated and taught to advance their speech, language, fluency and articulation skills. Through counseling, education and therapeutic intervention, therapists help individuals increase their vocabulary, expand word choices, improve articulation and promote fluency. We assist total laryngectomy patients with the right mode of communication by providing support, intervention and teaching.
