We offer the following inpatient therapy treatments:
- Occupational therapy: Our occupational therapists use therapeutic techniques and functional tasks to help patients achieve their maximum function following injury or surgery. They help patients resume activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, feeding and grooming.
- Physical therapy: Our physical therapists provide a variety of treatments to preserve and strengthen muscle and motor function. We use exercise, and gait and balance activities to help you return to your prior level of independence. These one-on-one sessions also help improve your functional mobility, and gross and fine motor skills.
- Speech-language therapy: Our speech-language pathologists provide evaluations and treatment for patients with speech, language and/or swallowing disorders. They retrain and improve speech and address swallowing concerns related to injury, surgery or a neuromuscular condition.
Our care doesn’t end when you leave our facility. We will help you prepare for your return home by creating a discharge plan and scheduling follow-up referrals, as well as providing patient support groups and family education and training to ensure a safe discharge home.
Patients who require additional care after discharge will receive outpatient services through our team at the Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center, conveniently located across the street from the main hospital.
