Physical Therapy Services
Our physical therapists can work with you to relieve pain, improve mobility, restore impaired functions, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities. Upon referral from your doctor, our experienced therapists will develop an individualized program of care tailored to your needs and abilities. Our therapists treat patients with a wide range of conditions (below).
Occupational therapy helps people learn or regain both physical and cognitive abilities to carry out the activities of daily living. These services can be especially valuable to persons recovering from a stroke or brain injury, as well as those suffering from disorders like multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease. Following a thorough evaluation, our therapists work one-on-one with each patient to help maximize skills and abilities. Often, these services make the difference that enables patients to live independently at home.
Speech & Language Therapy
Therapy Our speech therapists work with patients to help improve the ability to speak, listen, read, write, organize, and solve problems. Speech therapy can be especially helpful for patients whose abilities are impaired because of a stroke or head injury, those who suffer from speech impediments such as stuttering, patients who have suffered a hearing loss, and those with a mental disability or a condition such as cerebral palsy.
For patients who have swallowing problems, we can evaluate the condition in order to diagnose the cause of the problem and provide treatment. Our speech therapists may help patients improve their quality of life and regain the ability to enjoy normal eating and drinking.
