RehabWhat to Expect

You will receive a therapy plan tailored especially to your needs that may include heat therapy, electrical stimulation, exercise and manual physical therapy. Family members will be included in your therapy and taught to help.

Physical Therapy
Physical therapists can help reduce pain, weakness and stiffness, while building strength and endurance with heat, electrical stimulation, exercise and manual techniques.

Speech Therapy
Licensed speech pathologists can help with swallowing, speech or language problems. Compassionate therapists will work with you and family members to help regain your ability to speak or swallow after stroke, throat surgery or other conditions that affect speech and language.

Occupational Therapy
Licensed therapists teach patients how to care for themselves and return to productive living following surgery, injury or other conditions.

Hand Therapy
Regain the use of your shoulder, arm or hand with the help of a certified hand therapist. You will learn about before and after surgical care, pain management techniques, orthotics, modalities, manual techniques, exercise and other methods that can help. Cumulative trauma disorder is just one of our areas of expertise.

Pediatric Rehabilitation
Many children can benefit from therapy. Whether your child has developmental delays or disabilities or has suffered a traumatic illness or injury, we can teach new skills or help recover function with compassionate, family-centered care. Our therapists hold certifications in early intervention, sensory integration and neurodevelopmental treatment, as well as in child development.

Stroke Rehabilitation
A specially-trained team of professionals work with stroke victims to help them regain lost skills. Family members, who play an integral role in your recovery, will also be taught how to help you regain independence. Both centers provide stroke rehabilitation services.

Wound Care and Scar Management
Certified therapists will help to clean your wound and promote healing with whirlpool therapy and dressing changes. Gentle exercises may also be taught to build and maintain strength and mobility. Once your wound is healed, special garments and techniques may be recommended to help minimize scarring and prevent loss of mobility.

Sports Physical Therapy
This therapy is for individuals involved in organized athletics or leisure activities who have experienced traumatic or cumulative trauma injuries. The goal is to return the athlete to active participation as quickly and successfully as possible. From high school football players to golfers and weekend warriors, we can help all kinds of athletes feel and perform their best.

Post-Rehabilitation Fitness Programs
Once recovered, we can help you maintain your gains with a professionally supervised fitness program designed just for you. When you are ready, we can help you transition back into the fitness activities you enjoyed before illness or injury.
