Physical therapy works to help restore patients to their highest functioning level through training, exercises and use of adaptive equipment. Physical therapy is comprised of a comprehensive evaluation and individualized treatment plan. Patients receive specialized treatment, and extensive education is provided for both the patient and their families.
Occupational therapy focuses on helping people achieve as much independence as possible by getting them back to doing what was occupying their day. Our therapists focus on treatments to improve activities of daily living including eating, bathing and dressing.
Speech therapy focuses on helping people with a broad scope of speech, language, swallowing and voice issues involved in communication. The main goal is to assist each patient with improving their communication, cognition and swallowing ability to become more independent in life.
