Our physical therapists are licensed healthcare professionals who will perform a detailed evaluation and assessment of your health problem resulting from an injury or disease. Based upon this information and general health history, we will diagnose your problem and develop a treatment program that will get you the highest level of function in the least amount of time.
Generally, the patients we see need an ongoing strength or flexibility program in order to keep this condition under control. This will give you the tools to manage your health problem long after discharge from our services.
The occupational therapy staff is highly skilled in treatment that focuses on helping people achieve independence in all areas of their lives. In addition to dealing with an individual's physical well-being, our occupational therapists address psychological, social and environmental factors that may hinder an individual's functioning in different ways.
A wide variety of people can benefit from occupational therapy, including the following: work-related injuries, limitations following a stroke or heart attack, fractured bones or other injuries from falls, sports injuries or accidents, as well as arthritis, multiple sclerosis or other serious chronic conditions.
Our speech therapists are professionals educated in the study of human communication, its development, and its disorders. By evaluating the speech, language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing skills of children and adults, our speech therapists determine what communication or swallowing problems exist and the best way to treat them. Our speech therapists are also able to provide instrumental evaluation of the swallow function to improve the treatment plan and outcomes of swallowing impairments.
