Physical therapy

Our physical therapists work with patients and their doctors and caregivers to restore mobility and decrease pain. Physical therapy may include exercise, pain management and vestibular and balance retraining. Physical therapy is often used to help patients with orthopedic conditions and neurological conditions as well as patients recovering from surgical treatments.

Our speech pathologists evaluate, diagnose and treat speech, cognitive, communication and swallowing disorders. We help patients recover their speaking, eating, listening, reading, thinking and writing skills. We also assist patients who are recovering from surgery.

Occupational therapy

Occupational therapists guide and instruct patients with physical and developmental issues to help them learn how to live independently. Skilled treatment helps patients relearn activities of daily living through the use of adaptive equipment, sensorimotor skill training and exercise.

Occupational therapy often benefits patients with neurological conditions and injuries as well as hand and upper extremity injuries and disorders.
