Individuals experiencing the physical effects of an injury or medical condition may benefit from physical, occupational and speech therapy services, or a combination of the three. We are here to help you return to maximum independence.
Physical Therapy can help reduce physical limitations caused by many medical problems. We can help improve mobility, strength and balance, ability to perform work activities, return to hobbies, and we can decrease associated pain and fall risks.
Occupational Therapy can help improve safety and independence in everyday living activities such as bathing, dressing, and toileting. We can improve daily living skills by teaching strategies and techniques or by recommending adaptive equipment. Our occupational therapists want to help you return to work, household and leisure activities. We can also provide exercise programs, pain management, splints, and positioning devices to help you recover as quickly as possible.
Speech Therapy provides evaluations and treatment of swallowing disorders and speech/language and voice problems resulting from strokes, head injuries, respiratory issues, and other medical complications.
Our Therapy Services can assist those struggling with:
- An orthopedic injury or surgery
- Walking or moving around
- Performing daily tasks such as getting dressed, cooking or bathing
- Using hands when writing, keyboarding or opening jars
- Dizziness or balance problems
- Torticollis (shortening of neck muscles in infants)
- A change in ability to tolerate activities previously enjoyed because of weakness or fatigue
- Vocal loudness or sound quality
- Speaking or understanding speech
- Difficulty or pain with chewing or swallowing
- Coughing or choking when eating food or drinking liquids
