Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists evaluate and treat people with disabilities to help them participate more fully in life. Patients learn skills that allow them to accomplish daily living tasks, accommodate their disability, live an independent lifestyle, return to work, and/or adapt to a permanent loss. In addition, patients learn methods to prevent selected dysfunctions wherever possible. 

Treatment is designed to help patients increase daily functions. These treatments may include exercise, splinting, activities of daily living training, adaptive equipment recommendations and training, edema management, wheelchair training, and pediatric developmental therapy. 


Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a field of physical medicine that evaluates and treats problems that affect one’s ability to move and function. These abilities are driven by several body systems: muscles, bones, nerves, heart/lung, and skin. Exercise, heat/cold/electrical modalities, ambulation training, wheelchair training and assistive device training are used to treat these systems. 

Physical therapists strive to restore a patient's ability to function at pre-illness levels when possible and teach patients to function independently within their limitations when total restoration is not feasible. Physical therapists also teach prevention techniques.


Women's Health

If you are having issues with urinary incontinence, vaginal or pelvic pain, our Women's Health physical therapists may be able to help. The physical therapist uses the latest techniques and technology to help you improve your condition, even if you have suffered for a long time.

Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy is the evaluation and treatment of human communication disorders and includes speech, language and swallowing. These disorders can be congenital or acquired and can affect people of any age. Treatments by speech therapists may include speech treatments for voice problems, apraxia and communication disorders; dysphagia treatments; audiometric screenings, development testing for language delay and hearing; and augmentative alternative communication devices. 

Speech therapists teach patients skills designed to restore the ability to communicate, either in a normal or an assisted manner. 

The ability to swallow effectively is a vital human need. We have various programs that address swallowing dysfunctions, including VitalStim a progressive therapy that uses calibrated electrical stimulation. These programs help patients achieve more effective swallowing mechanisms. 

Care is provided for both inpatients and outpatients of all ages with a broad spectrum of diagnoses.
