From minor deficits to conditions affecting an individual's ability to live and function independently, Rehabilitation Services provides a myriad of services to help our patients return to their highest level of function as quickly and safely as possible.
- Occupational Therapy: Occupational therapy focuses on improving a patient's function as it pertains to daily living skills. This includes dressing, grooming and eating, in addition to improving motor, cognitive and social skills. Our occupational therapists specialize in increasing strength and movement of the hands and upper extremities. They assist patients in relearning functional tasks, as well as instruct them on how to utilize adaptive equipment that may make some daily tasks easier.
- Physical Therapy: Physical therapy helps patients achieve a maximum level of independence and mobility by improving strength, flexibility, and functional movement. This includes bed mobility, walking and balance. Our physical therapists provide mobility evaluation and training, and may also provide patients with guidance on how to use assistive devices, orthotics, prosthetics and wheelchairs.
- Speech Therapy: Speech therapy, which is also known as speech pathology, focuses on improving a patient's verbal and nonverbal communication skills, problem solving abilities, concentration, memory and voice quality. Our certified speech therapists may also help patients who suffer from a swallowing disorder to improve their ability to safely eat and drink.
