Speech Language Therapy
Physical Therapists provide proper treatment in circumstance where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease, birth defects or environmental factors. Physical Therapists are experts in evaluation and treatment of the Musculoskeletal system (system that allows the ability to move using the muscular and skeletal system). Our physical therapists address these factors after an individualized assessment to provide the treatment that will allow you to restore and maintain maximum movement and function. We implement physical therapy interventions on patients of all ages with treatment programs designed to meet each patient’s individual needs. Our goal is for you to gain maximal level of functions by exercise, posture instructions, body mechanics and joint mobilization.
SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY
Our Speech Language Pathologists are dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of speech, language, voice, swallowing, cognition and communication abilities. Infants, children and adults are treated for various causes. Our team will allow the patient to gain quality of life through proper and successful methods by providing direct patient care, counseling and education. Both receptive (understanding speech) and expressive (speaking) communication skills are evaluated to build a personalized treatment plan to focus on optimal communication and swallowing function.
Patients that are hospitalized requiring physical therapy receive treatment in their care room. Our physical therapists work closely with the physicians to build a care plan to maximize the recovery process. The friendly staff from rehabilitation services visits the patient, provide treatment and follow-up after the patient leaves the hospital.
