Physical therapists and physical therapy assistants work as part of an interdisciplinary team to prevent and treat injury, educate patients and their families, and prepare them for the highest quality of life.
There are several ways to achieve your physical therapy goals. Exercise, strength training, balance training, manual therapy techniques, postural retraining and education are just a few of those ways.
Speech therapy can help with the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of communication disorders or swallowing problems. Speech therapists also function as part of a multidisciplinary treatment team for patients who require rehabilitation after a major illness or neurological condition that has affected their speech and communication skills. The speech therapist can also provide counseling to patients and their families about communication and swallowing disorders.
Our therapists provide professional, compassionate solutions that will help you become and stay active.
Occupational therapy (OT) involves the use of assessment and intervention to develop, recover, or maintain the meaningful activities, or occupations, of patients. Occupational therapists evaluate and treat patients of all ages with disabilities, injuries, or impairments. They coordinate skilled treatment plans and goals with the patient, physicians, families, caregivers and other professionals to obtain maximum benefit from the therapy services provided. Using a wide variety of exercises, treatments and purposeful activities, the goal is to enable the patient to assume or resume the highest quality of functional living as is possible.
