Why Therapy?
There are countless reasons why you may require physical therapy. These reasons range from post-operative rehabilitation, acute or chronic pain, dizziness, falls, wound care (to name a few)!  Whatever your needs may be, our approach and philosophy are simple: personal therapy with exceptional outcomes.

 

Physical Therapy and the Physical Therapist
Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility - in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.  Physical therapists can teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so that they will achieve long-term health benefits. PTs examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.  Your physical therapy and rehabilitation will be personally designed based on your unique situation, needs and goals. You will be treated by a highly qualified and caring therapist dedicated to improving your health and well-being.

Occupational Therapy and the Occupational Therapist
Occupational Therapy is treatment that focuses on helping a person achieve independence in his or her day-to-day life. Within the geriatric population, occupational therapists typically focus on a person’s bathing, dressing, and grooming abilities. Occupational therapists are trained to identify problems and make recommendations for improvement. At times, equipment recommendations are made including rolling walkers, tub benches, commodes, and adaptive eating utensils.

 

Speech Therapy and the Speech Therapist
Speech-Language Pathology is treatment that focuses on improving a person’s ability to communicate effectively and eat safely. Speech-Language Pathologists typically focus on speech, language, voice, cognition, and swallowing abilities. It is a Speech-Language Pathologist's job to identify a problem in any or all areas and provide therapeutic treatment to enhance a person’s ability to communicate with family, friends, and doctors, as well as, make safe, competent decisions. Speech-Language Pathologists are also skilled specialists in identifying and treating swallowing difficulties that otherwise may go unrecognized. Therapeutic programs, adaptive equipment, and compensatory training are provided, as needed.
