Physical and occupational therapists enable patients to achieve a productive
and independent lifestyle. A holistic, patient-centered approach improves
performance of activities of daily living, work, and leisure pursuits.
Occupational therapy assists to re-train patients in everyday activities
such as dressing, bathing, and eating. The occupational therapist focuses
on restoring these vital activities of daily living so that patients gain
greater independence and self-reliance.
Orthopaedic therapy focuses injuries and conditions affecting the musculoskeletal
system, which includes tendons, muscles, bones, joints, and ligaments.
This may include strengthening and stretching exercises as well as balance
work and joint mobilization. Orthopaedic therapy may also treat patients
who have recently undergone orthopaedic surgery.
Our pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapists are knowledgeable
in the developmental milestones that are normally attained at each stage
in a child’s life. Our therapists are adept at encouraging and inspiring
children to reach their goals while fostering a warm and welcoming environment.
Physical therapy assists in restoring strength, balance, and control. The
primary goals of therapy are to reduce pain and to increase strength,
range of motion, and muscular control. Effective physical therapy allows
the patient to live as independently as possible in order to return to
work and to enjoy sports and everyday functional activities.
Sports Physical Therapy
This type of physical therapy emphasizes rehabilitation and performance
enhancement. Sports physical therapists also work with athletes in the
area of injury prevention.
Speech-language pathology assists to improve speech and language challenges
caused by illness or injury that may have affected expression, comprehension,
hearing, sound production, and articulation. Difficulties with swallowing
may also occur due to stroke, cancer treatments, or Parkinson’s
disease. Speech therapy provides innovative techniques and strategies
that improve a patient’s quality of life.
Women’s Health Services
Physical therapists are trained to evaluate and treat common conditions
in the area of women’s health, such as pelvic weakness and pain,
incontinence, pregnancy-related pain, and postpartum issues.
