Physical therapy focuses primarily on pain relief, promoting healing and restoring function and movement (such as walking) associated with injury.
Occupational therapy is similar to physical therapy. However, it focuses more on assisting patients with performing routine daily tasks (such as sweeping the floor, clothing management or preparing a meal).
Speech and language pathology evaluates, diagnoses and treats speech, language, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders in individuals. This also includes strengthening facial muscles to provide for easier eating and swallowing.
A therapist will conduct a full assessment of your condition and pinpoint the cause and nature of your pain. The patient is encouraged to communicate with the therapist throughout the session to indicate if pain occurs and is never forced to proceed with an exercise beyond their tolerance of discomfort.
Rehabilitation is for anyone who needs it, regardless of their age, size, body mechanics or movement patterns. Generally, the most applicable candidates are those that have been in accidents, suffer from arthritis, pre- and post-operative patients and those with general deconditioning or strains.
With rehabilitation, a trained therapist will create a customized plan-specific to your needs-ensuring the quickest and safest possible recovery. You will also be thoroughly educated about your condition and be taught the proper exercises and activities that will improve your mobility and performance, while also decreasing your pain.
Offering occupational, physical and speech therapy.
Inpatient therapy requires a short-term stay at our facility, ranging anywhere from a few days to couple of months (depending on the nature of the injury and amount of therapy required). An assessment by the rehabilitation team will determine the therapy program.
We are committed to giving each of our residents the highest quality of therapy. Evaluations are conducted throughout the treatment process to ensure that all goals are being met.
Our staff continually takes the time to educate the patient-as well as the family-throughout the entire treatment process, to ensure that once the problem is corrected, re-injury can be prevented.
