Outpatient Rehabilitation Programs: Occupational, Physical, Speech and Hand Therapy

Occupational Therapy

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. Our therapists treat individuals with a wide range of conditions

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapists can work with you to relieve pain, improve mobility, restore impaired functions and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities. We offer a variety of therapeutic techniques, approaches and equipment in customizing each patient’s treatment regime.  In addition, we will show you techniques to prevent recurring injury and to maintain your renewed mobility. Our therapists treat patients with a wide range of conditions.

Your therapist will closely monitor your exercises and therapies and may prescribe a home exercise program to reinforce your treatment.

Speech 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. On an outpatient basis, we provide treatment to help those who suffer from a variety of conditions.

For patients who have swallowing problems, we can perform a barium swallow study to diagnose the cause of the problem and provide treatment. Our therapists are trained in providing VITAL STIM— the only therapy of its kind certified by the Food & Drug Administration for the treatment of swallowing disorders. By using electrical stimulation to increase strength and coordination of the swallowing muscles, our speech pathologists may help patients improve their quality of life and regain the ability to enjoy normal eating and drinking.
