Rehabilitation  

Occupational Therapy is generally recommended following a stroke, accident or illness. Patients participate in directed activities to increase strength and coordination. Hand therapy, massage and other techniques are used to decrease pain, while exercises increase motion. Therapists teach simplified ways to perform self-care, household and work activities with special aids or assistive devices.

Physical Therapists evaluate, treat and educate patients to help prevent or alleviate pain and dysfunction. To restore mobility and function, physical therapists employ a variety of treatment techniques to increase motion, increase strength, improve balance and decrease pain.

Speech/Language Pathologists work with patients to recover speech and swallowing capabilities lost due to stroke or trauma. In addition, persons of all ages can be evaluated and taught to advance their speech, language, fluency and articulation skills. Through counseling, education and therapeutic intervention, therapists help persons increase their vocabulary, expand word choices, improve articulation and promote fluency. We assist total laryngectomy patients with the best mode of communication by providing support, intervention and teaching.
